Learn how to harvest rainwater for all your garden needs and to combat stormwater pollution in your community by constructing a rain barrel!
Cuyahoga SWCD will host a rain barrel workshop and pick-up at the South Euclid Community Center on Wednesday, March 20, 2024.
Participants will learn how to set up their barrel(s) and drill a spigot hole at this event. Alternatively, participants 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, drill bits, 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 March 11th. Be sure to bring a vehicle that can accomodate your barrel(s)!
