Rain Barrel Workshop – 5:45 – 6:45 pm @ EAC office
August 5 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
See how our EAC rain barrels are built, and get to know some of the unique features we’ve incorporated into our design. Learn how to assemble, locate, install, and set up your rain barrel, and how to keep it in great condition and doing a great job all season. We’ll also provide some tips to transition your downspouts and barrel for winter storage. Throughout our workshop there will be ample opportunity for Q & A with EAC staff, who can answer questions about ecological impacts as well as practical everyday use of rain barrels.
By the end of the workshop, participants will have a sound understanding of the individual and community benefits of having a rain barrel, and can be confident about next steps to install, use and care for one. You’ll receive a discount on the EAC rain barrel you assemble at the workshop, so you can take it home the same day!
