Let It Rain

Horticulture club members are busily putting together rain barrels for sale to everyone interested in conserving water. All proceeds will go towards the club's Spring field trip to Longwood and Chanticleer Gardens in Pennsylvania. Each barrel comes complete with a faucet, a hose connection for disposing of runoff, and flexible tubing for attachment to your gutter. Barrels are made of lightweight, heavy duty plastic and are available in three colors: white, green or blue. The price is $50 for a barrel with hardware or $30 for the barrel only. Anyone interested in making a purchase may contact George Thomas (horticulture instructor) at 627-4625 or gthomas@haywood.edu. With your support, you can cut down on your water bill while helping our students at the same time.
