About this event

Description

This activity is closed to further registration.

In this hand-on programs, we'll be making complete rain barrels to take home and use in the garden! All supplies provided for one barrel per registered participant. Please see notes regarding Rain Barrel use at home and transportation of barrels.

Participants are encouraged to bring one helper per registered participant to assist with rain barrel assembly and transportation. Both registered and non-registered participants will be required to follow social distancing and safety guidelines as communicated by staff prior to the program.

We will be following current social distancing guidelines at the time of the program. All sessions are subject to change based on the ongoing pandemic. If you register for a session that is canceled or postponed, you will be notified by staff.



Rain barrels work best at homes with gutters and downspouts. The barrel should be placed under a (trimmed) downspout so that water leaving the gutters is retained in the barrel for use in the garden.

Water collected in a rain barrel should be used for gardening only and should not be used for human or animal drinking, food preparation, or personal care.
Please check with your neighborhood or home owners' association to be sure that a rain barrel is within the rules of your neighborhood before registering.
Our rain barrels will be made from re-purposed 55-gallon plastic barrels and you will be responsible for transporting your rain barrel home immediately following the program. Storage for barrels will not be provided following the program. Please ensure that you will have adequate transportation for your barrel.
Participants are encouraged to bring one helper per registered participant to assist with rain barrel assembly and transportation. Both registered and non-registered participants will be required to follow social distancing and safety guidelines as communicated by staff prior to the program.
