Rain barrels fund student environment group

Centre Wellington District High School (CWDHS) is now accepting pre-sale orders for a truckload Rain Barrel Sale scheduled for May 4 at the high school from 3:30 to 6:30pm.

Rain barrels are being sold for $55 each and funds raised will support the CWDHS environmental program.

Rain barrels capture and store rain water collected from roofs through downspouts. They provide chlorine-free and fluoride-free water which is ideal for flowers, vegetables, lawns, shrubs and trees.

Collected water has a number of other uses including washing cars, cleaning floors, laundry and more.

Purchasers have a choice of colours and each rain barrel comes equipped with all the parts needed to set up the barrel.

Pre-sale orders are being accepted now at www.rainbar rel.ca/CentreWellington.
