Saturday, May 15th-Burrillville Farmer’s Market Open Day-
Pascoag Utility District will be sponsoring a Water Conservation Booth with RI Water Lady- Beverly O’Keefe. Rainwater barrels will be available for purchase but it’s best to preorder. Go to www.riwaterlady.com to preorder your rain barrel by clicking on the Pascoag Utility District banner. The rainwater barrels will then be available for pick up at the Pascoag Utility District Water Conservation Booth. The barrels are made out of recycled food barrels which have been retrofitted to become rain water barrels. Rain water is then captured from the downspout gutters and collected in the 60-gallon rain barrel. One inch of rain water can generate up to 620 gallons on a 1,000 square foot roof!!! The market will also be offering free soil testing courtesy of Master Gardener Pat DiLorenzo. Gardeners are encouraged to bring their soil samples and find out how to improve the quality of their soil. The band, ÒTen Rod RamblersÓ will be playing in the gazebo and there will also be face painting!
