For the past couple of weeks I have been searching the area for the most affordable source of plastic food grade barrels to use in our rain barrel workshop. What I’d like to do is identify the lowest cost provider, and then go pick up as many as we can for the folks here in LaVergne who want them. These will be 55 gallon plastic barrels, and so far it looks like the cheapest ones that I know are food grade are $12 a piece. What I’d like to accomplish with this post is to find out how many barrels in total we need to get, so if you know you are interested, please leave us a comment indicating how many you would like.
Here are some video clips of people making rain barrels, just to give you an idea of what you’re getting into:
