Do you want to conserve water? After completing this class you will understand the why, where, and how of how to use your new rain barrel. During class we will talk about how to use your rain barrel effectively. We will talk about what to do once you bring it home. We learn what to do at the end of the season to put your rain barrel to bed for the season.
After our discussion we will go into the shop and construct our rain barrels. We will build a barrel similar to the one we have pictured to the right. If you would like to build more then one barrel we offer additional rain barrel kits for $10 off, only $35 .
We have the class room and shop for a limited time and there will be lots of team work to get everyone's barrel completed. Please come prepared to take notes, get a little dirty, and have a good time. Please dress comfortable and bring a water bottle.
