Watershed & Rain Barrel Workshops
Let’s Celebrate the Rain!
PRC offers two wonderful Watershed Awareness & Rain Barrel Workshop series across the Commonwealth.
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 region. Workshop attendees will learn about the problems associated with stormwater runoff, ways to conserve water in their homes, and watershed friendly landscaping techniques.
PRC West participants will receive a pre-made 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.
