Welcome to Rain Barrels Iowa. Harvesting the rain is a wonderful way to save money, conserve a valuable resource, and live more sustainably. Here we can exchange tips and discuss how to improve our rain harvest practices, tools, and learn what works best!
Now is the time of year to be getting your dreaming and planning done. Lay out your beds, order seeds (we carry Seed Savers Seeds http://www.seedsavers.org/onlinestore/ from Decorah, Iowa), determine where to put a rain barrel or three, clean tools you forgot about last fall and generally get in the mood for winter to be finished, if you're not already there. Feel free to contact us firstname.lastname@example.org) anytime now with questions you may have. Spring really is getting closer.
