The Geauga Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) Rain Barrel Yard Art Campaign auctions have begun and new this year… you can view and bid on barrels on the District’s website! Eight local artists and groups have donated their time, talent, and materials to the District by painting barrels and creatively transforming these recycled plastic barrels into beautiful and functional yard art. These decorated rain barrels are now on display and available for silent bidding at various locations throughout Geauga County (as indicated below) for the months of August and September.
Bidding can also take place online by visiting the Geauga SWCD website at www.geaugaswcd.com. The final barrel sales and artist recognition will take place at the Geauga SWCD Annual Meeting on October 25, 2012. All proceeds will go toward the District’s environmental education programs. Here’s your chance to finally get a unique rain barrel while helping to protect our water resources. Don’t delay, bid on a barrel today!
