Rain Barrels store a free and valuable resource that falls from the sky instead of allowing it to contribute to erosion and problems with run-off. Rain stored in barrels provide water for garden irrigation, car washing, and muddy dog hosing, all while saving wear and tear on your well pump or saving money on your municipal water bill.

About the Author
- Mike Kinsey
Due to the presence of a day job, I (tongue-in-cheek) consider myself a Gentleman Homesteader. My wife usually considers me half that. Through Permaculture implementation, we strive to build resilient, sustainable food production systems that increase our family’s food security, and then that of our community. How is this possible when Husband slaves at least 50 hours a week behind a keyboard in a cubicle farm and Wife runs around after a mischievous toddler and soon-to-be-ornery infant? It’s possible because we continually design systems that work harder than we do.
