Spring is upon us here in the Hudson Valley, which means it’s a great time to start composting and collecting rainwater for your garden! 
 
Groundwork Hudson Valley and Southern Westchester Energy Action Consortium (SWEAC) want to help by sponsoring a Compost Bin and Rain Barrel Sale.  Last year, over 150 local residents purchased quality compost bins and rain barrels at very deep discounts.  If you don’t have a rain barrel or compost bin, this is the time to order one!
 
This is a limited-time opportunity to purchase high-quality compost bins and rain barrels at near-wholesale prices:     ?        ?
Earth Machine Compost Bin $55 (regularly retails for $145)?
Systern Rain Barrel $75 (regularly retails for $125)?
 
reserve by June 6 for pickup June 9 at the Greenburgh Nature Center
 
Compost
By composting your kitchen and yard waste you will be helping to keep up to 650 lbs of waste per household out of the waste stream per year, thus helping to save municipal hauling costs, minimizing waste and creating a great (free!) fertilizer for your garden!
 
Water
Clean water is becoming an increasingly scarce resource, especially with the hot summers and recent significant increase in the price of municipal water. As we use more and more water to keep our gardens irrigated, it makes perfect sense to use what nature gives us for free—rainwater free from chlorine and water treatment chemicals to keep our flower beds, container garden and lawns lush during hot spells. Amazingly, a single summer shower can fill up a 55 gallon barrel with rain water your plants will love, instead of causing flooding and river pollution. Why not save some for a sunny day? ?? ?
 
Pre-ordering is by June 6 for pickup June 9th in Greenburgh (see below for other locations).
Pre-order either online at http://compostbinandrainbarrel2012.eventbrite.com/  or by emailing Lynn Oliva at lynn@groundworkhv.org (indicate which products you are reserving and which location/time you will pick up).  Products must be pre-ordered by by June 6th for pick-up on June 9th. 
 
The sale will be held rain or shine and payment is due at the time of pick-up by cash or check only at the following locations and times:

  • Saturday, June 9th at the Eastchester Town Hall parking lot, 40 Mill Rd., Eastchester (9:00 am to 11:30 am) and at Greenburgh Nature Center, 99 Dromore Rd. Scarsdale (1:00 pm to 4 pm).                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
 
The compost bins can process up to 650 pounds of household waste a year and will improve soil for garden plants.
The rain barrels, made of 50% recycled plastic materials, hold up to 55 gallons of rainwater which can be used directly in garden watering.
 
Happy spring!?
PAUL FEINER
