Making Rain barrels

We reused 55 gallon drums that had been used for food storage to make DIY rain barrels for AVillage’s Our Children’s Garden.  The process involved cutting out the top, drilling an overflow hole on the top side, installing a bulkhead and faucet on the bottom side, and covering the top with screen to prevent critters and mosquitos from accessing the stored water.  It has been placed under the downspout at the garden.
