PROJECT RAIN BARREL WORKSHOPS
RAIN BARREL WORKSHOPS ARE FULL.
Create your very own rain barrel. All materials are provided at the workshop and PRWC volunteers will help guide you through the construction process. The take home product will be one finished 55-gallon rain barrel that will capture your roof's rain water. Participants MUST be prepared to bring their rain barrel home with them. Pre-registration and payment is required.
Please arrive a few minutes before your scheduled workshop time. All tools and materials will be provided.
The Rain Recycle Diverter Kit provided uses a flex-fit diverter design. The kit creates a closed system. The unique feature of the diverter is the back flush. When the barrel is full, the water backs into the downspout stopping more water from going into the drum so you do not need an over flow, you do not need to cut off the gutter, or worry about mosquitoes.

The 55-gallon syrup drums for conversion into rain barrels were donated by the Coca-Cola Company as part of their goal to return to nature and communities an amount of water equivalent to what is used to produce their products. Dimensions of the drums are 26” diameter across end, 39”long and 72” circumference.
