Rain Barrels

Buy a Rain Barrel and $10 goes to Wilkinson!

Our Greening and Grounds Committee has partnered with to offer discounted rain barrels to the Wilkinson community.

Rain barrels are an eco-conscious addition to any home that has a downspout. The water collected provides relief to sewer systems during heavy rains and is a vital source of water during droughts.  They also provide chlorine-free water for gardens and lawns (plants vastly prefer rainwater to tap water).’s inventory is much cheaper than in most gardening retailers, and every barrel sold provides $10 to Wilkinson. Proceeds fund school initiatives such as field trips, new library books, and arts performances!

To ensure the school receives the allotted funds, please order barrels through this personalized website:

The last day to purchase a barrel is May 26. Deliveries will be made to your address free of charge on May 27!

Never thought about using a rain barrel before? Here are some benefits of using one (and using rainwater for your garden):

  • Save water and money: Using rainwater instead of tap water for outdoor use can reduce your water bill.
  • Better gardens: Grow bigger and better plants and vegetables with rainwater and avoid chlorine and fluoride found in tap water.
  • Protect local waterways: Fast-moving rainwater washes pollutants from lawns and driveways into streams, rivers, and lakes. Rain barrels capture water and slow it down to be released slowly after storms have passed.
