rainwater to water trees, gardens and lawns. The rain barrels are made from 100
percent recyclable materials, connect to existing downspouts or rain chains,
and come with a childproof and mosquito-proof lid.
They can be purchased
directly through the program’s website, www.rainbarrelprogram.org/venturacounty, using a credit card.

$149 but the discounted price is $75 plus tax. Order by March 6 for a March 12 pick up at one
of two locations: Ventura County Government Center (Parking Lob B and C, 800 S.
