Event Navigation

Materials saved from the landfill:
hardware, barrel

Learn how to collect rain water in your own backyard with a rain barrel! A local gardening expert from the Earthways Center will give a talk on the importance + benefits of rainwater collection for the watershed and for your home. After the talk, Perennial staff will lead the class in altering their food-safe 55-gallon drums to transform them into rain collectors, and will instruct on ways to incorporate them into your yard, including creating a base to elevate them, and demonstrating how to connect them to your gutters. Additional hardware may be required to connect to your gutters at home, but a basic setup will be provided.

This is an in-person class that will take place at Perennial. You will be assigned your own socially distanced work station, and will be required to wear a mask while you are here. Our full policies can be found here.
