Rain Barrel Installation Class

Class Description

Sunday March 24th from 1-4pm

Rain barrels capture water from a roof and hold it for later use such as on lawns, gardens or indoor plants. Collecting roof runoff in rain barrels reduces the amount of water that flows from your property. It's a great way to conserve water and it's free water for use in your landscape. In this class you will learn all you need to know about how to install your own rain barrel system. 

$25 per person to attend the class and learn 

$75 extra per person for your own rain barrel installation kit
