hi all! i want to make a rain barrel to use to water the lawn and gardens. i can't afford to buy the pre-made ones. i have found lots of great instructions to make my own, but i can't find a food grade barrel (or similar) in lawn centers or walmarts, etc. near me. i am in the Norfolk/VA Beach area in southeastern VIrginia. can anyone tell me where to look for one of these and what they might cost?

Food grade barrels - try asking a bakery.

Listed is a food-grade barrel website:

Your next step is finding a food grade roof though or maybe just a reverse osmosis system to remove impurities. Plants are wonderful filters of impurities themselves. Good luck. Aloha
