With Garden Month right around the corner, the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens has teamed up with the St. Johns Riverkeeper to bring you something great for your garden. For a limited time, you may purchase a high-quality, 50-gallon, Ivy Rain Barrel for the discounted price of $65.00 or 2 for $120.00 through the St. Johns Riverkeeper website.
Why purchase a rain barrel? By using captured rainwater to water plants or wash your car, you can help to lower your water bill, prevent the over pumping of groundwater and help protect our aquifers, springs, wetlands and river. You also protect the river and its tributaries from storm water runoff that may carry fertilizers and harmful chemicals.
