[ARCHIVED] Calling all gardeners!

Rain barrell picture

Are you in the market for a rain barrel? What about a backyard compost bin? If these are on your wish list, it's time to make that wish come true!

The City of Houston Green Building Resource Center is sponsoring a rain barrel/ compost bin sale to anyone interested in rain barrels and compost bins at a greatly reduced price. A percentage of all sales goes to the continued work of GBRC in educating the public about conservation and recycling. Deadline to order is Sunday, October 2, at 11 pm.

For just $69.00 you can purchase a 50 gallon, 100% recycled mega-star rain barrel that regularly retails for $129. It is made in the USA and made to last. The Ivy rain barrel comes with everything you need to assemble, collect, and use rain water. Barrels can easily be daisy chained with no added cost- all components included, even a 6' long overflow hose!

Also available is a 65 gallon backyard compost bin. Easy to assemble, the bin has 5 panels and weighs only 20 pounds. The bin comes with composting instructions to make your adventure a success and one for which your plants will thank you! The backyard composting bin is being offered for the low price of $65.

Both items will be available for pick up on October 8 at the Houston Permitting Center, located at 1002 Washington. Pickup hours are from 10 am - noon. For more information check out the Houston Green Building Resource Center link.
