Keeping Ontario Beautiful

The Wild & Wonderful Gardens of East York

OUr 2008 garden tour is now over. Thanks for coming!

During the tour, there were several inquiries about the rain barrel in one of the gardens. The barrel is Canadian-made, from Algreen Products, in Cambridge, and was purchased from Plant Paradise Country Gardens, near Bolton. The model that you saw was the Agua (pictured at right) – it holds 50 gallons (225 litres) of water, and costs $99.95 at Plant Paradise. A 65-gallon model is also available. Both models are sturdy plastic, but the with the appearance of ceramic, they're a welcome relief from the usual ugly black barrels.
