Archive for the ‘Rain Barrels’ Category

June 6, 2012 6-7pm

Presented by: Clean Virginia Waterways and Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay
Registration Fee: $65 per rain barrel
Location: Forest Hill Park (The Stone House)
4021 Forest Hill Avenue, Richmond, VA

Why Rain Barrels? Rain Barrels can be placed under
your down spouts to capture roof runoff. The water stored in the
rain barrel can be used to water gardens or lawn. Rain barrels
can also help control stormwater runoff, which causes erosion
and degrades our streams.
Benefits. Although rain barrels are available at
garden stores, they are not cheap! During the workshop
you will learn how to install and maintain your rain barrel,
plus about your role in water conservation and water
quality protection. Learn how you impact the Chesapeake
Bay and other waterways. You will leave the workshop
with a pre-made rain barrel that was once a pickle barrel.
Note: this is not a “hands-on” workshop.
