Event Details

Rain Water Harvesting

This course will provide an overview of rainwater harvesting, history, uses and applicability to conserving rainfall as a natural resource. We’ve divided this class into 2 portions.  The first portion is free and the second is $35, which covers the cost of constructing a rain barrel.  You must attend the first class in order to attend the second.  The second portion is optional.

9am
During the first portion of the class, participants will discuss the benefits of rain water harvesting and learn all aspects of  building and maintaining both passive  and active container catchments (rain barrel).  Passive catchments are landscapes that use rain as their only source of water. They include roof gardens, 
rain gardens, bog gardens and swales. Components of such systems will be shown, and participants will be walked through the steps of designing and building rain gardens and other passive-catchment systems.
Cost: Free (all participants must register)


10am
In the second portion of the class, participants will build their own rain barrel.  We’ll be modifying a common 55-gallon drum for harvesting rain water.  They will also learn how to cover, hide or decorate large tanks to make them more aesthetically pleasing.  Setting up solar-powered pump and incorporating drip-irrigation systems will also be covered. 
Cost: $35 / $30 for Master Gardeners (all participants must register)
