Rain Barrel & Watershed Workshops
Celebrate The Rain!
It’s time for us to start celebrating rainwater. So, our organization offers Watershed Awareness & Rain Barrel Workshops across Pennsylvania.
Rain barrels are a great way to conserve water. Also, they supply non-chlorinated water for gardening and keep excess water out of the storm-water system. Thus, it is alleviating some of the storm-water issues plaguing the region. Workshop attendees will learn about the problems associated with storm-water run-off. They will learn ways to conserve water in their homes and watershed-friendly landscaping techniques, as well.
PRC West participants will receive a FreeGarden RAIN 55-gallon rain barrel, and PRC East participants will learn how to retrofit a 55-gallon drum into a rain barrel. A rain barrel is a system that connects to your downspout to collect and store rain water from your roof that would otherwise be lost to runoff and diverted to storm drains, streams and rivers.
