Rain barrels + Raised beds = Rain beds

This system is comprised of rain barrels connected to a raised bed, and is the lowest-cost, highest-benefit way we have devised to help treat stormwater runoff from our roofs. Build your own with materials sold at cost by the district, or you could buy a complete rain bed set-up at our Annual Plant Sale on February 10, 2018.

Please contact Derek Hann at 425-377-7012 or derek (at) snohomishcd.org for more information or to have the Snohomish Conservation District come out for a site visit. 

Please note: We will have a demonstration rain bed at the Annual Plant Sale being held on Saturday, February 10, 2018. If you know you want one in advance, you can order one through the Plant Sale Shop until January 29, 2018.
