You can purchase them at all the big-box stores or through several companies online, or you can RSVP to attend the Capturing Rainwater presentation by Pikes Peak Permaculture today at Hillside Community Center. You'll learn the basics of catchment principles, how to design your system through your gutters and how to convert 55-gallon drums into irrigation vessels.
