Rainwater harvesting is great for North Texas because you can keep some of the rain we get during the spring and fall to use during our hot and dry summers. Even a small roof area can produce a usable amount of water during an average rainfall. From huge cisterns to small DIY barrels, capturing rainwater can be done by anyone.
- How much water your roof will produce in a year
- Where to put your rain barrel to capture the most water
- How to install a barrel
- How to hook up and use your new water source
- How to build your own 50 gallon rain barrel with just a few supplies from the hardware store
This is a free online class only. Register here to receive information on how to participate.
The workshop will be 45 minutes long and taught by Dr. Dotty Woodson.
