Rain Barrel Workshop

Wednesday, June 15, 2022
7:00 pm8:30 pm

In partnership with the Pennsylvania Resources Council, learn how to practice watershed protection and conservation in your own backyard. It’s easier than you think! 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 watershed, problems associated with stormwater runoff, ways to conserve and preserve water in their landscapes, and watershed friendly landscaping techniques. Participants will receive a pre-made FreeGarden RAIN 55-gallon rain barrel. (pictured above). Designed with the homeowner in mind, it is attractive and easy to install.

The fee for the workshop, which includes the rain barrel, is $80. Pre-registration is required. Register through PCR's website at
