Rain Barrels - Online
Adult / Enrichment -
Adult Fall 2021 - Summer 2022
Rain barrels harvest rain water from roofs and other structures that can then be used to water gardens, lawns, and potted plants. Installing a rain barrel is an excellent way to reduce run-off and pollution as well as save MONEY! As much as 40% of residential water is used for irrigation in the summer. Participants will learn the ins and outs of rain barrels, site selection, and other tips to use rain barrels most efficiently. We will also talk about the pros and cons of many of the commercially available rain barrels and how to make your own. After the class, participants will have the opportunity to receive in the regular mail SRWD’s Native Plant Book, the specific class informational folder, and be entered into the prize drawing.
An email invitation will be sent with a PDF version of the PowerPoint and the Zoom link to the meeting prior to the presentation date. You will be able to interact live with the instructor during the online presentation to answer any of your questions.
NOTE: We are using a "Register Now, Pay Later" procedure. You are registering for the class and your credit/debit card or checking account will be charged 2-3 days prior to the class start date. You will be notified if this class is cancelled.
