Rain Barrel Workshops
Collecting rainwater in a barrel can save you money during the dry seasons and reduce demand on your well or save on your water bill. With a roof of 1,000 square feet, an inch of rain can generate 600 gallons of water!
At each rain barrel workshop, you'll learn about the many uses of a rain barrel and you'll even build one yourself! All supplies are included in the fee, which will be determined at the beginning of the season. To learn how to make a rain barrel yourself during the off season, visit the Ask HR Green website for a construction guide.
Just $20 secures your spot in one of these classes, but hurry -- space is limited! Register online at www.askhrgreen.org/BSHworkshops!
