Add a Rain Barrel to Your Garden


Last week, a new crop of kinder-gardeners in Ms. Koen’s class at East Central Lower

Elementary School received the gift of water…well, sort of.  Jeannine May of NRCS,

donated a rain barrel to these new gardeners to be used in their Peoples’ Garden!



The kids learned about how to catch and re-use rainwater and how a rain barrel works.  

They can’t wait to get wet!
