Rain Barrels for the
State of Delaware
Lewes in Bloom volunteers helped the
State of Delaware Go Green! by saving money, resources and rain
water. In 2009, we sold 100 Rain Barrels for the low, low price
of $66.00, a green savings of 45% if purchased elsewhere! This
was a community service project sponsored by DNREC and promoted
by LIB volunteers. The terra cotta plastic rain barrels hold 60
gallons of non potable water and can be used for many years. Hopefully,
this will be an annual event and will help spread the good news
about LIB and how we promote the conservation of environmental
Eddy Rayner (below), a LIB volunteer, was the first on his
block to purchase, pick up and install his rain barrel.
