Did you know that 40% of residential water use in the summer is from lawn and garden watering? Why not let Mother Nature pay the water bill by constructing your own rain storage system?

This is a make & take program.

  • Adult program
  • Pre-registration required. Register now below!
  • More than one person can attend with your group (great for families!), but only 1 rain barrel per registration.
