Vendor Application for 2014
Rain Barrel Sign-Up
Two 1-hour long rain barrel workshops will be offered at GreenFest (10am and 12pm). Howard County residents (ONLY) can sign up to receive a free rain barrel with parts for at-home assembly. There will be 50 free rain barrels available, so sign up early. You will receive your rain barrel at the GreenFest event, so bring a vehicle that can accommodate pickup. I want a free rain barrel!
