The Harrisburg Rain Barrel Project

Project Initiation

On March 7, 2013, Jump Street hosted a group of Harrisburg city residents who thought it would be a good idea to discuss promoting the use of rain barrels in the City of Harrisburg. A bit of brainstorming was done, and the group came up with a number of preliminary ideas, needs and issues that they want to discuss further at the next meeting scheduled for April 4, 3:00 p.m. at Jump Street. Other interested people are invited and encouraged to participate!
