We sell rain barrels in collaboration with the Butler County Storm Water District. This year's rain barrels are the Agua Rain Barrel from Algreen. These typically sell for $100-130, but through the storm water district we can offer them for $65. This is $10 cheaper than last year!
We sell the Earth Machine composters. These typically retail for $100 and we sell them for $60. These are not tumbling/turning composters. After researching several brands of tumbling bins, we decided to go with the a tradtional bin due to cost and/or construction of thr bin. If you do decide to purchase a tumbling composter online or at a store, please read reviews. Several models of tumbling bins appear to have issues with the tumblin mechanism or where the barrel is attached to the stand.
