I wrote a few days ago that our city is making a big push to encourage residents to install rain barrels, and is putting on a workshop in March. As an added incentive, the city is giving free rain barrels to the first five residents who signed up, and $50 vouchers to the next 20. Yesterday we got a call that we were the first to sign up!
After a few discussions with the city and Hoffman Garden Center, it turned out that the city was looking for a place to film a rain barrel installation for the workshop and our home is in a perfect location. So, this morning, Sarah and Chrissy from the city, Bill from Hoffman Garden Center and a film crew came by to film our installation.
I didn't get to watch the whole thing as a certain adorable three-year-old loves his mommy too much to let me out of his sight or be quiet on the set, so I only got to see the beginning. Good thing we'll be at the seminar. If local readers attend, they may see said three-year-old screaming in the window. Oops.
