E304 – Will Has New Rain Barrels

Will Vanlue is back! With new tales of rain barrels and riding bikes with his son! He breaks down what’s great about low-car life in a family context, recaps his fascinating rain barrel system described in episode 236 and describes the upgrade that he recently installed!  Resilience is strong with this one.

Will recommends Green Concepts Container as a resource for clean, safe barrels.
Here’s the link to the City of Portland’s (surprisingly useful) rain barrel guide:
