Instructor Steve Torres of the DVC Horticulture Department will teach water conservation and the benefits of using rain barrels at this hands-on workshop! Rain barrels collect and store water runoff during storms. The collected water can then be used to water veggies, flowers, wash your dog, emergency water storage and more! The workshop will cover different types of rain collection, from 55 gallon barrels to 5,000 gallon storage tanks.
Rain barrels help:
- conserve water
- reduce flooding
- reduce water pollution
- save money!
Students will participate in building a rain barrel and also have the opportunity to purchase one to take home!
