There are a number of different options available to you from purchasing a ready made barrel at a home improvement store to making your own system using a diverter kit and a recycled drum. Rain barrels capture water from a roof and hold it for later use. Collecting roof runoff in rain barrels is helpful in conserving water and reducing your water bill by providing free water for use in your landscape.
This month join us for a resident workshop where we will teach you the basic components and uses for your rain barrel and assist you in retrofitting a 50-gallon drum with an EarthMinded DIY Rain Barrel Diversion Kit. The cost of the workshop is free, however there is a $45 fee to purchase the rain barrel and diversion kit. Please limit to one per household. Multiple family members may attend with one RSVP. At the end of the presentation we will have planned time to help with installing the rain barrel kit. We will help drill holes and show you how your kit works.
