Event description

Description

Managing water during the rainy season can benefit you later when our dry northwest summer weather arrives. In this hands-on workshop, one of Seattle Tilth's experts will spend an hour teaching you different techniques to harvest rainwater, efficient tools for watering, when you should water, and how to ensure your soil has its best water-holding capacity. Then at 11 a.m., Snohomish Conservation District will provide all the tools, equipment, and expertise to help you make your own 55-gallon rain barrel to take home for $35*. Not into DIY? You can also purchase a pre-assembled rain barrel for $50* to take home that same day. This is an outdoor hands-on workshop. We'll be under cover, but you should dress for the weather.

*If you’re planning to bring home a rain barrel, please pre-pay for it online at www.snohomishcd.org/byo-rain-barrel or pay with cash or check at the workshop (no debit/credit cards accepted on site).

Space and materials are limited, so preregistration is required if you're making or buying a rain barrel!
