Posted by Trish Riley, March 27, 2009

Now is your chance to start preserving our natural resources. Collect rainwater for garden use and compost your vegetable and yard scraps to nourish your soil. You can get the necessary equipment for about 1/3 the usual price!

Alachua County and Home Depot are offering discounted Rain Barrels ($45) and Composters Bins ($35) this Saturday, March 28,  9-4 at Home Depot, 5150 NW 13th St.

If only 1000 area residents begin composting scraps, we can keep 600,000 lbs. of organic resources from being wasted in landfills. If you capture just 1 inch of rain from a typical roof, you’ll get 600 gallons of rainwater to use on your landscape for free!
