While the rainfall is plentiful now, in several months we’ll be eager for additional water for our vegetable and flower gardens.
One water-wise option is building a rain barrel, which we’ll help you do at our Sunday, June 9 workshop from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m.
Participants will learn about the importance of water conservation as well as about low-cost water conservation techniques that can applied to their homes. Capturing and reusing rainwater for your gardens is one way of controlling storm water and helping to reduce local flooding.
At the workshop, you’ll be given all of the materials and instructions need to build, install and maintain a rain barrel. Individuals, as well as groups of people building one rain barrel, are welcome. We hope to see you!
