Rain Harvesting Donations

We partnered with the Starker Arts Garden for Education (SAGE Garden) soon after our establishment, donating materials and labor to provide the garden with irrigation for winter via rain barrels. Residential rain barrel donations also played a part in forming Bountiful Backyard.

Additional rain barrels have been donated through our workshops.

Fun fact: Bountiful Backyard’s first volunteer project was to install a second-hand water heater as a rain barrel.
