In an effort to raise awareness of water as a limited natural resource and to connect our local schools, arts and sustainability communities, the Waukesha County Green Team in partnership with the Delafield Public Library has challenged area students and artists to create rain barrels as beautiful as they are functional.

 These special works of art will be displayed on the Delafield Public Library grounds for a silent auction fundraiser. Viewing and bidding will be open to the public during the library’s normal business hours from Saturday, May 7 through Saturday, May 21.

 Each barrel will also include a downspout diverter kit with spigot, hose, and fittings. For more details on the kit, check out a short video at this link:

 In addition to the auction, Project Rainway will offer a Rain Barrel & Rain Garden Workshop on May 10 and a presentation entitled Climate Justice Art on May 17. 

 Final Bidding: May 21, 2016 at 3:00 pm
