Catch the Rain: DIY Rain Barrel Class

Monday, May 23, 2022

This class is hands on “DIY” where each participant will build and take home a pre-purchased 55-gallon rain barrel at $55 dollars each.

This class is sure to be a barrel of fun! Join Garland Water as we host Rooted In as they teach about the importance of rainwater and how to DIY your own rain barrel. 

Experts agree rainwater is the best water for your lawn, landscape or vegetable garden. Join us to learn simple techniques on how to divert, store and use one of nature’s best resources for the garden. We’ll also pour through the basics and benefits of rainwater harvesting and how it can reduce the effect your stormwater has on the environment. 

This class is hands on “DIY” where each participant will build and take home a 55-gallon rain barrel at $55 dollars each. Rain barrels are recycled food-grade containers and are roughly 24” wide by 36” tall.

Class participation is free but if attendees would like to DIY a barrel, purchase must be made prior to class.
