Join us to build your very own rain barrel to take home. Rain barrels are 55 gallon drums outfitted to collect rain water from your roof so that you can use it for watering plants or washing your car. This fun family activity will walk you through each step of rain barrel construction and review the many benefits a rain barrel provides! Save water by retaining the runoff from your roof and keep your garden happy!

This workshop will provide you all the materials and guidance you need to create your very own rain barrel. Once you take it home you may decorate your barrel however you’d like, the workshop will cover how to do so and offer some creative solutions! Rain barrel care and maintenance such as mosquito prevention and overwinter storage will be discussed as well.

Admission is done “by the barrel.” Bring along up to five people per barrel! You may opt to purchase more than one barrel if you would like.
