Conserve water, reduce runoff, water your garden for free! You can do all these things with a rain barrel. CRWP is once again hosting our rain barrel workshops. Join us for an engaging information session and assemble a rain barrel.
We are reducing waste by reusing 55-gallon plastic barrels that have been used in food production. A list of dates, locations and registration information can be found on the calendar on the right side of this page.
CRWP has developed the following to help you install and decorate your barrels.
Northfield property owners are eligible for a $20 rebate from the City of Northfield when you purchase and intall a rain barrel. For more information, see the City of Northfield’s Rain Garden/Rain Barrels page.
Owatonna residents are eligible for a $10 rebate when you purchase and install a rain barrel. For more information click here.
