Rain Barrel and Backyard Composter Sale

2017-05-07 10 am - 3 pm Location: VanDusen Botanical Garden

The Rain Barrel Truck Load Sale is Back!  And we’ve added Backyard Composters!

Ambient temperature, chlorine-free rain water is a great drink for a happy garden!

It’s also great for saving our treated drinking water.  During the summer, water consumption doubles due to outdoor watering.

If every house in Vancouver had one rain barrel, we could collect 29,000,000 litres of water each time it rained, saving a huge amount of treated water for where it’s needed most: Drinking, washing, and cooking.

The Rain Barrels and Backyard composter truck-load sale is on May 7th 10 am to 3 pm

Pick up at VanDusen Garden, in the C-drive off of Oak St.

Rain Barrel: $52 (price may slightly vary by Municipality)

Backyard Composter: $25 for City of Vancouver residents (ID req’d), $49 non-City of Vancouver residents.

Pre-ordering is recommended, but not required.

Pre-order at Vancouver.ca/rainbarrel
