Want your town to host a rain barrel workshop? Let us know!

Stormwater carries harmful pollutants such as excess nitrogen from fertilizers into Barnegat Bay. Rain barrels collect stormwater before that water can make it to the roads and carry pollution into our waterways. This rain water collected from your roof can be reused to water an ornamental garden, fill a bird bath, wash a car, and more! Build a rain barrel with us today to create a Smart Yard for a Healthy Bay!
