Event description

Description

Have you ever thought “What a waste!” when you see rainwater pouring out of your gutter down spout and then down the street? Then join UF/IFAS Extension Florida-Friendly Landscaping agent Brian Niemann for this hour-long workshop on how to save that water in a recycled plastic drum for use in your landscape! The collected water may be used for your plant beds, potted plants, and special plant collections. Each attendee will receive instructions on how to build and install a rain barrel, or you also have the option of *purchasing a completed rain barrel in advance of the workshop.

*Rain Barrels are available only at the class and pre-payment is required when registering. If the rain barrel will be transported inside your car please plan to cover your seats to protect from possible soil or moisture.

Drum Specifications: Plastic, recycled food-grade drums. Please note: color of drum may vary. Approximate Drum Dimensions: 3' tall, 22" diameter. Capacity: approximately 55 gallons. These drums have two 3" diameter threaded holes with caps in a NON-REMOVABLE top. Cutting of the top typically requires a power saw. As part of the installation we recommend the user attach screen to the top of the barrel to exclude mosquitoes and to filter roof debris.
