Build Your Own Rain Barrel Workshop (1:00 – 3:15 p.m.)
Going “green” by using organic lawn care products and less labor-intensive practices is just the first step in the process to convert your unsustainable lawn into a less-thirsty native plant landscape. Go “greener” by harvesting rainwater to nourish your soil, reduce your water bill and water in between downpours.
||Sunday, September 22
||1:00 – 3:15 p.m.
||In this hands-on, make & take workshop, learn how a one-time investment of less than $100 will allow you to harvest 55 gallons of chemical-free water from your roof every time it rains.
||$80M / $95NM
||Wear your weekend work clothes, including closed-toe shoes. Necessary tools and safety equipment will be provided. Cost of workshop includes one barrel and one conversion kit. Register early as this class fills quickly!
