2015 DIY Rain Barrel Workshop Announced

06 Apr

Join the Historic South Park neighborhood association and the Sierra Club for a Do It Yourself Rain Barrel Workshop. Each participant will receive a 55 gallon food grade plastic barrel, DIY Earth Minded diverter kit, and learn how to install their barrel at home. Lawn and garden watering can make up 40% of a home’s summer water usage.
