Rain barrels are currently available at the Onslow office of N.C. Cooperative Extension. These roughly 50-gallon food-grade rain barrels come complete with screened inlet, brass faucet, and 1.5-inch overflow outlet. The cost is $50 for a ready-made unpainted rain barrel. Both red and black rain barrels are available at this time. Call (910) 455-5873 for additional information.
There are also some rainbarrels that were painted by our summer 4-H program youth. These painted barrels are $75 each. The additional $25 goes to the Onslow 4-H program.
