DIY Rainwater Harvesting – Arlington

February 3 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Capture water while it is raining this spring to use on your landscape later!

Join our workshop to learn how, then build your own rain barrel to take home!

Register here.

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. Attend this workshop to learn the ins and outs of rainwater harvesting and purchase a discounted barrel to take home!

Learn about:

  • 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 Workshop is for Arlington, Texas Residents Only.
