Each participant will construct a rain barrel to take home or can pick up their rain barrel and construct at home with provided online instructional video.

If you would like to create a two-barrel system, a second barrel and connector kit is available for an additional $40.Registration is required by March 22nd.
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.
