Details

Rain Barrel Catchment is an effective technique for outdoor water conservation. Rain barrels are used to collect rain water outside a structure that can be used for outdoor purposes, such as watering landscapes, which helps save water and save money.  

One rain barrel per household is available only to those who attend the lecture. Participants must have a vehicle large enough to transport the barrel -- no delivery or storage services are available.
