Rain Barrel Workshops

Rain Barrel Workshops

Workshops at RMSC

Multiple Dates Below

Create your own rain barrel and take it home — we supply everything but the rain.

Rain barrels are a great way to collect rain water to be repurposed for lawn and garden watering, saving you money and resources!

Water usage increases by approximately 30 percent in the summer months due to watering gardens, filling pools and more. Rain barrels are a great way to challenge that percentage and maintain a cost-effective process.
