This spring the East Metro Water Resource Education Program (EMWREP) is teaming up with Cedar Hill Natives to offer a Make’N’Take Rain Barrel Workshop. Rain barrels collect rainwater from your roof downspouts, which can be used to water your flower gardens during dry weeks. They will have an inlet, an overflow hose, and a spigot at the bottom to attach to your garden hose. Rain barrels are an easy way for you to help reduce pollution from stormwater running off your roof or driveway, and capture water for you to use to water your trees and flower gardens.
On May 19th Connie Taillon, owner of Cedar Hill Natives, will be there to help you discover the benefits of rain barrels and will cover assembly, rain barrel, installation tips, care and maintenance, while also discussing many local water resource concerns and water conservation tips for your home, yard and landscaping.
There are 3 options for rain barrels:
Reconditioned Plastic Barrels: $65.00
Molded Plastic Barrels: $95.00
Oak Barrels: $125.00
Quantity and availability of rain barrels is limited, so register early and invite a friend! You will receive a confirmation of your registration within two business days of receipt of your registration.
