Oakland Rain Barrel Program

The Oakland Rain Barrel Program (ORBP) uses federal grant dollars to sell discounted rain barrels to Oakland residents in areas that are at risk of erosion. This program also aims to educate Oakland residents on watershed protection and foster the growth of green jobs. The Groundation Foundation Living Wall uses a water efficient irrigation system that utilizes water collected from the roof of American Steel Studios and stored in a 2820 barrel donated by the Oakland Rain Barrel Program.
