Free electronic download. Rainwater harvesting is an easy way to capture rainwater in a storage container for later use. The water can be used for watering plants and pets or filling bird baths or landscape water features. Capturing rainwater reduces the amount of municipal or well water you need to use and reduces runoff and erosion. With the simple steps described in this publication, you can make a rain barrel for your home.  Go to: L-5518 to order printed copies in English.
