Action at one of Sustainable Lawrence's two rain barrel-outfitting events during our "Green Everything Days of Spring" (March 20-26).  Here employees of the Delaware River Basin Commission in West Trenton prepare their own rain barrels on March 24. Sustainable Lawrence is tracking down further donations of rain barrels and can show you how to put one together and install it. You'll potentially save thousands of gallons of unnecessary runoff and assure a steady water source for your garden.

Following the principles of "The Natural Step" and working with the local community, Sustainable Lawrence aims to create an 'eco-municipality' in Lawrence Township, New Jersey.
