Rain Barrel Workshop @ GrowFest!- Fruit & Spice Park
Come learn how harvesting rain water can help reduce pollution from stormwater runoff and provide a supply of free, non-chlorinated, pH-neutral water for your vegetable garden, prize orchids, potted plants and much more! The workshop is free to attend and recycled plastic 60-gallon food-grade drums (rain barrels) are available for purchase at $40.00 each. You may purchase rain barrels online through registration with a credit card. Rain barrels can be purchased at the workshop with a check or money order only. Cash is not accepted.
Miami-Dade County residents will also be able to exchange three (3) old light bulbs for energy saving compact fluorescent light bulbs and exchange up to two (2) water-wasting showerheads for water-efficient models. Quantities are limited.
