EVENT: City of Dunwoody Sustainability Commission Rain Barrel Workshop

Would you consider spending $35 if it meant you could water your prized plantings for FREE this growing season? 

Do you strive to maintain healthy bacteria in the soil where you are growing edibles?  

Aware that chlorine in our house/hose water kills the healthy microbes living in the soil and leaves the garden more susceptible to pests and diseases, are you looking for a better way to water?

If you answered "yes" then here's an event for you:

City of Dunwoody Sustainability Commission Rain Barrel Workshop
