Rainwater harvesting is great for North Texas because you can keep some of the rain we get during the spring and fall to use during our hot and dry summers. Even a small roof area can produce a usable amount of water during an average rainfall. From huge cisterns to small DIY barrels, capturing rainwater can be done by anyone. Attend this workshop to learn the ins and outs of rainwater harvesting, and purchase a discounted barrel to build and take home!

Learn about:

• How much water your roof will produce in a year

• Where to put your rain barrel to capture the most water

• How to install a barrel

• How to hook up and use your new water source

• How to build your own 50 gallon rain barrel with just a few supplies from the hardware store

Crowley, Texas Residents: Register for the workshop to build a rain barrel to take home for only $25!

Attendees get to build their own rain barrel and take it home.

A 50-gallon rain barrel can be purchased for $25 and built in person at the Crowley Recreation Center on April 23, 2022.

Rain barrel information: These rain barrels are discounted from $50 to $25. Barrels are 50 gallons and made from previously used food safe storage containers. The barrels will vary in color and could be blue, white, brown, or black. You do not get to choose your barrel color. Approximate dimensions are 35 inches tall by 24 inches diameter.

Rain Barrel Building Information: You will be required to build your own barrel with help from class instructors. Power tool use will not be required. The build requires no prior skill and mainly consists of attaching things to the barrel.

After the barrel is built, you will be required to load your barrel into your vehicle.

Registration is required for attendance. More than one person from your household can come to the workshop with the purchase of one barrel/ticket, but only one barrel/ticket per household please.

One barrel per household, per year. The address you register with must be located in Crowley, Texas to be eligible to purchase a barrel. Any orders that do not comply with restrictions may be cancelled at TRWD’s discretion.

The workshop will be 45 minutes long and taught by a Tarrant County Master Gardener.
