Five rain barrels featuring art by students from Hudson Montessori, Hudson High School, and Old Trail School will be raffled off at the Green on the Green event September 17. Raffle tickets are $1 and are available for advance purchase at the Public Works Department, 1769 Georgetown Road, Destination Hudson, and the Environmental Awareness Committee booth at the Farmers Market Community Days on August 13.
A rain barrel is a container that collects water from a roof as it flows through a downspout. Why would you want a rain barrel? It not only conserves water, but is also an easy and practical way to control excess storm water and reduce the negative effects of pollution.
The rain barrels are on display at Destination Hudson during their regular hours, so stop by to check out the unique art.
