Congratulations to this year’s rain barrel raffle winner: David Eaton!!
And a huge thanks to everyone who came to see us at the H&G Show!
Oklahoma receives an average rainfall of 36 inches per year. Rain barrels are a simple, eco-friendly way to store and use rain water captured by your roof’s gutter system. Rain barrels can save you money by providing free H2O to help water your lawn and garden, or even wash your car. A rain barrel distribution event is coming soon to your area. To place an order for a reasonably-priced rain barrel and accessories, visit http://www.upcyclerainbarrel.com
Don’t forget to visit us at the H&G Show in just 2 weeks! We will have rain barrels and compost bins on display and you can even enter a raffle to win a rain barrel for free!!
