The Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation partners with Coca-Cola Consolidated and other community partners to offer rain barrel workshops at various locations across the Catawba River Basin throughout the year. Each rain barrel workshop is a hands on, do-it-yourself opportunity to build a 40-50 gallon rain barrel suitable for use at your home or place of business. Rain barrels capture water from a roof and hold it for later use such as on lawns, gardens or indoor plants. Collecting roof runoff in rain barrels reduces the amount of water that flows from your property. It’s a great way to conserve water and it’s free water for use in your landscape!
Rain barrel workshops cost $50 per barrel. Each workshop participant will go home with a complete, ready to catch rain barrel that they will build on site during the workshop. Cost includes all hardware, construction materials, and instruction. Workshops last about one hour. To sign up for an upcoming rain barrel workshop, fill out the form below. If you are interested in hosting a private rain barrel workshop for your business, community group, or HOA, please email email@example.com.
