Rain Barrel Workshop – Online
August 11 @ 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 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. The final portion of our workshop is devoted to a live 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 also receive a discount on purchase of an EAC rain barrel!
