Rain Barrels

There will be TWO rain barrel workshops:

Space is limited and there will be a waitlist. Please register only if you are committed to attending. If your plans change, please let us know asap at guilfordcreekweek@gmail.com. This comprehensive workshop will teach you why rain barrels are important, how to build one, and at the end of the workshop you will end up going home with one of your own! Social distancing will be in effect and all protocols put forth by the Governor of NC will be followed.

Both will be held at the Guilford County Cooperative Extension, 3309 Burlington Rd, Greensboro

Free of Charge

Only ONE rain barrel per household

What is a rain barrel?

A rain barrel is a system that collects and stores rainwater from your roof that would otherwise be lost to runoff and diverted to storm drains and streams.

Why a Rain Barrel?

If you collect rainwater, you’ll be able to keep watering and nourishing your garden with the rain that you collect. So you save money! You’ll also help to reduce runoff pollution. When it rains, runoff picks up soil, fertilizer, oil, pesticides and other contaminants and pushes them into other areas of the landscape.
