Rain barrels are a great way to conserve water, to supply non-chlorinated water for gardening, and to keep excess water out of the stormwater system, thus alleviating some of the stormwater issues plaguing the area. Workshop attendees will learn about the problems associated with stormwater runoff, ways to conserve water in their homes, and watershed friendly landscaping techniques.
Participants will learn how to retrofit a 55-gallon drum into a rain barrel. The first 50 participants will receive a 55 gallon food grade barrel with necessary plumbing to convert into a rain barrel.
The next workshop will be on:
- Wednesday, April 25th at Norwood Borough Hall starting at 6:30PM.
- Thursday, May 25th at Upper Darby High School Cafeteria at 6:30PM
- Tuesday, June 13th at Yeadon borough Hall at 6:30PM
