Rain Barrel

Rain Barrels

Why Use Rain Barrels?

Get FREE water by the barrel from your roof and use it when it’s dry outside to give thirsty gardens, flowers, and trees a drink.  Rain barrels help keep excess water out of the sewer system and help reduce water pollution.

Rain Barrel Workshops

Learn how to install and care for a rain barrel in a rain barrel workshop. Participants will learn about water conservation and the many benefits of using rain barrels. Rain barrels capture rainwater from your roof that you can use later when it's dry for thirsty gardens. They also help prevent rain from becoming polluted stormwater runoff, the biggest remaining threat to clean rivers and our Great Lakes.

One FREE rain barrel will be provided per household at the workshop and registration is required. 

The popularity of our rain barrel workshops has them filling up quickly.  Having trouble finding an open one?  We are in the process of setting up more. Please sign up to be notified with news and announcements about the workshops.
