Join fellow water stewards on Friday, May 6, 2011 at the South Bend Museum of Art for a Rain Barrel Auction. Capture rain water to water your flowers and vegetables, to keep stormwater from going into the river and to beautify you yard!
Twelve area artist and artist groups, including students and buddies from the Special Needs and Abilities Preschool (SNAP), are busily painting 55-gallon plastic containers converted for use as rain barrels. The goal is to raise awareness of water as a natural resource and demonstrate how homeowners can save money while protecting the St. Joseph River and watershed by capturing water in a rain barrel. This Rain Barrel project is being conducted by Kathleen Petitjean, SNAP OT and a Fellow with IU South Bend Center for a Sustainable Future.
Auction benefits IUSB Center for a Sustainable Future, South Bend Museum of Art and the Artists/Artist Groups.
