Its raining in the southeast and when it does, we gets lots of hits from people looking for information on how to buy rain barrels I decided to do a short post so that the information is easy to access. If you live in the Charlotte NC metro area, there are two easy ways to order rain barrels in April. In Charlotte, order your rain barrels through Mecklenburg Soil and Water Conservation District but hurry, deadline to order is April 7. If you miss that deadline and live near Matthews, Habitat and Wildlife Keepers (HAWK) and the Town of Matthews have teamed up to sell the same rain barrels at the same price as the county. Send an email to HAWKncwf@gmail.com to order yours today, deadline April 15. And if you don’t live close enough to the Charlotte area to take advantage of these sales, contact your local county extension office and ask where you can get a rain barrel .
