Rain Barrel

Pierce County Rain Barrel Sale
Pick-up Event Date:  June 12, 9am-2pm

The Rain Barrel Virtual Workshop is back, just in time for spring drizzle to be captured for summer use. If you’re looking for an inexpensive and sustainable alternative for watering your yards and gardens, we are here to make that happen. For just $25, participants take home a disassembled rain barrel of their very own; assembling them is a fun family activity that can be done when you have time.  At-home assembly video is sent prior to pick-up event.

To be COVID safe the workshop portion of this program is online, which makes it easy for you to do when you have time.  To get your rain barrel we host a dispersed pick-up event. 

This sale is currently open to residents of unincorporated Pierce County only as they are who is sponsoring the discounted price of these rain barrels.  Want to make sure you qualify or have questions, contact Allie (AllieC@piercecd.org)

Want to grow more beauty and shade around your home by greening up your landscaping with trees?  If you live in Tacoma, Puyallup, or unincorporated Pierce County you can purchase discounted trees through our Urban Tree Sale. 

Head on over to our sale page (link above) and purchase up to 3 trees per household.  From that webpage you can access the online workshop which must be completed prior to pick-up.  The trees will continue to grow at the nursery over the summer where they will be tended to by professionals.  This fall we have two pick-up events to get you your trees and watering buckets.
