Consider a “Greener” Garden with Composters and Rain Barrels.

Attendees at the 2022 Earth Fair have the opportunity to pre-order composters and rain barrels, or make a rain barrel on the day of the event!

Composting helps to improve and maintain high-quality soil for growing healthy plants, reducing the use of fertilizer and pesticides, and conserving water by allowing the soil to hold more water in the root zone.

Rain barrels help reduce stormwater runoff, and the rainwater collected contains natural nutrients that also help reduce the need for chemical fertilizers.
