Rain Barrel workshop
July 16, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Save water, save money, and save our local waterways all at the same time!
Learn all about rain barrels and how to install them on your property at this FREE workshop at Saint Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Parkville. Rain barrels help reduce stormwater runoff that can carry pollutants to our creeks and the Chesapeake Bay. Water your garden and lawn, or wash your car with the water that you conserve! At the workshop you will get a brief educational presentation that teaches you about the benefits of rain barrels, how we make them, along with installation and maintenance tips.
