Build Your Own Rain Barrel Workshop


The extreme drought has everyone thinking about water conservation. Go green by harvesting rainwater to nourish your soil, reduce your water bill and water between downpours. In this hands-on, make and take workshop, learn how a one-time investment of less than $100 will allow you to harvest 55 gallons of chemical-free water from your roof every time it rains.

The instructor for this course is Joe Blanton, the Houston Arboretum's conservation director.
