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!
- 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 Bedford, Texas Residents Only.
This workshop is in-person and includes a class about rainwater harvesting basics and a demonstration on how to build a barrel. After the class portion, you will get to build their own rain barrel to take home.
Registration is required for attendance. More than one person from your household can come to the workshop with the purchase of one barrel/ticket, but only one barrel/ticket per household please.
The workshop will be 45 minutes long and taught by Theresa Thomas and Claire Alford, Tarrant County Master Gardeners.
