Learn how to harvest rainwater for all your garden needs and to combat stormwater pollution in your community by constructing a rain barrel!
Gates Mills Land Conservancy and Cuyahoga SWCD will host a rain barrel workshop and pick-up at the park behind Village Hall on Saturday, May 6, 2023.
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. The $60 fee includes instruction and all materials, including a 60-gallon barrel and a downspout diverter. 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 April 26th. Be sure to bring a vehicle that can accomodate your barrel!
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.
