Rain Barrel Workshop: Make and Take
April 22, 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Rain barrels capture water from a roof for later use on lawns or gardens. In this workshop, we’ll make rain barrels to take home with help from representatives from the AmeriCorps New Jersey Watershed Ambassadors Program. All participants will need to bring their own safety glasses and this specified diverter kit: EarthMinded DIY Rain Barrel Diverter and Parts Kit -RBK-0001. Options for purchasing can be found online at Amazon and Home Depot. We will supply the 55-gallon industrial-grade containers. (If you have an electric or battery-operated drill, please bring that as well.)
Participants must have a downspout at home in order to install these barrels, and should be prepared to follow the written instructions that come with the kit in order to complete the installation at home on their own – this includes drilling a hole in your downspout.
This workshop is limited to the first 10 individuals or families who sign up here.
It’s a great way to conserve water and it’s free water for use in your landscape.”
