Learn how to harvest rainwater for all your garden needs and to combat stormwater pollution in your community by constructing a rain barrel! The City of Parma, Cleveland Metroparks and Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District will host a rain barrel workshop on Thursday, March 15, 2018 beginning at 6:30 PM at the Cleveland Metroparks Watershed Stewardship Center at West Creek Reservation. Each participant will construct a rain barrel to take home. The $60 fee includes instruction and all materials, including a 60-gallon barrel and a downspout diverter. Registration is required by March 9.
A rain barrel is a container used to collect and store rainwater that would otherwise be lost to runoff and likely diverted to a storm drain. Collected water may then be used to water lawns and gardens.
To register: Register online below or by calling Rocky River Watershed Program Manager Jared Bartley at 216-524-6580 x1003.
Registration to build a barrel is now closed. Please check our events calendar for upcoming rain barrel workshops!
