Rain Barrel Workshop

When: Tue., April 19 2011

Take it from us: When water rates double and global warming gets serious, you are going to wish you had a rain barrel. Why wait? You can learn how to harvest rainwater for all your lawn, garden, and car-washing needs tonight in Broadview Heights, as reps from the Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District lead you through a barrel-making workshop. A $60 fee snags you a 55-gallon drum, a downspout diverter, and complete instructions and use of tools; 90 minutes later, you go home with a completed rain barrel and the sure knowledge that you are now positioned to divert storm-water runoff, nurture your landscape, and stick it to the Water Department in one fell swoop. It happens at 6:30 p.m. at the Broadview Center, 9543 Broadview Rd. To register (which is required), call Jared Bartley at 216-524-6580 ext. 14 or send an e-mail to jbartley@cuyahogaswcd.org. — Cicora
