DIY Rainwater Harvesting

Capture rain this fall to use on your landscape later!

Join our free online class to learn how! Then, purchase a discounted rain barrel to take home!

Register and more details 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

Tarrant County Residents: Get a rain barrel for only $25!

When this workshop is in-person, attendees get to build their own rain barrel and take it home. Since we are unable to do in-person workshops at this time, in addition to the free workshop, we are offering the option to purchase a 50-gallon rain barrel at a discounted rate.

For Tarrant County residents only, a 50-gallon rain barrel can be purchased for the discounted rate of $25. Rain barrels will be available for pick-up on September 26 from 8 am to 12 pm in south Fort Worth at the Tarrant County Resource Connection (additional information on registration page).

After registering, check your email for instructions on how to join the online event and retrieve your rain barrel.
