Rain Barrel Workshop

During this workshop, you will be taken through the assembly of a rain barrel! The co-host for this event is Greenville County Soil and Water Conservation District. The rain barrels were provided by the Watershed Ecology Center and kits are provided through a generous donation from ReWa.

A full description of the kit can be found at this link. In addition to the kit, you will be provided a 55 gallon barrel. It is recommended that you watch the rain barrel installation video prior to the workshop. You'll also want to review the information below so that you're ready to choose a location for your rain barrel! Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrqW_HryiWM
