Barrel of Rain

The Alabama Clean Water Partnership wants to teach you a neat trick. It involves you picking up some new skills, saving yourself money while doing something good for the Earth. Interested?

Your house needs a rain barrel. And the ACWP wants to teach you how to build one. For a mere $25, you can attend a rain barrel building workshop and go home with a simple and Earth-friendly piece of technology that you can use for many years to come. Rain water harvesting decreases demand for domestic water and can save you money on your utility bills. Residential irrigation can account for up to 40% of consumption. By collecting rain water and storing it a rain barrel you’ll have water for future use — whether for watering the garden or keeping it handy for emergency situations.

And why buy one of the expensive commercial models available on the Internet? At $25, the workshop is a bargain and also provides you with the skills to make other barrels (and teach your friends).

You’ve got two chances this coming week:

Thursday,October 28, 11am – 12:30pm
