RainBarrel.ca is pleased to partner with the Winnipeg Community Garden Network, a not-for-profit group of volunteers dedicated to encouraging a healthy community gardening movement in Winnipeg by supporting and linking gardeners. The members of this organization encourage all homeowners to use rain barrels to collect rainwater to use in the garden – this is a good gardening practice with both environmental and financial benefits.
Each rain barrel comes fully equipped with a leaf and mosquito filter basket, an overflow adaptor that permits multiple barrels to be connected in series, 1.2m of overflow hose and a spigot that attaches directly to a garden hose (additional hosing can also be purchased if required). There are three colours available – black, grey and terra cotta. All have a capacity of approximately 220 litres and are approximately 1m tall and .6m in diameter. The price is $55 per barrel. Orders are now being taken for a May 8, 2011, pickup date.
Distribution will be from 10am to 2pm at the Mother’s Day Plant Sale in the parking lot of the Canadian Mennonite University, 500 Shaftesbury Boulevard. Order your barrel online by selecting one of these buttons below: Buy Now (use your debit or credit card to pay online now) at http://rainbarrel.ca/winnipeg/ OR Cash-on-Pickup (reserve a barrel and pay in cash at the sale event).
You can place your order by telephone. Call 204-783-8513. You can also call if you need assistance placing an online order.
A limited number of extra rain barrels MAY be available for walk up customers at the sale event. These will be sold on a first come, first served basis for $65 each. To guarantee you will get a rain barrel, please order online or by phone.
Bring your receipt to the Mother’s Day Plant sale at the Canadian Mennonite University on May 8, 2011 to pick up your barrels.
