Watershed Awareness & Rain Barrel 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, supplying non-chlorinated water for gardening by collecting and storing rain water from your roof through a connection to your downspout that would otherwise be lost to runoff and diverted to storm drains, streams and rivers. Rain barrels keep excess water out of the storm-water system thus alleviating some of the stormwater issues plaguing the region. However, if you are looking for purified water for the items of your property or you own a business that uses water in different areas, a custom bottled water enables you to set a new standard with your customers. Start impressing them from the get go with something unique, something the competition has not thought of. It’s essential for humans to consume a healthy amount of water to keep hydrated and stay healthy.
Workshop attendees will learn about the problems associated with stormwater run-off, learn watershed-friendly landscaping techniques and how to conserve water in their homes. Next to air, water is the most important element for the preservation of life. Water is a finite commodity which, if not managed properly, will result in shortages in the near future. Water conservation can go a long way to help alleviate these impending shortages.
PRC West participants will receive a FreeGarden RAIN 55-gallon rain barrel.
