Rain $aver Barrels –  Julies Maule-Ffinch

Citizens for a Clean Caledon pioneered Rain $aver Barrels. The rain barrel program grew out of the Peel Region Water Efficiency project in Bolton.

Barrels are retrofitted by ecoCaledon from olive barrels diverted from landfill. A work party of 8 members spend a day in the spring and fall each year converting the olive containers into rain barrels.

This use of rainwater for gardening needs will help further our water efficiency objectives. Rain $aver Barrels will meet all your garden watering needs, your gardens will thrive without the use of energy.
