For Hill Country residents, water is a precious commodity. From reducing water bills to water-wise thinking and practices, it’s always a good idea to learn how to help the environment while also benefiting yourself.
Harvesting rainwater is one of those water-wise practices that is definitely a win-win. Learn why at the Harvesting Rainwater Do-It-Yourself Rain Barrel Workshop at the San Antonio Botanical Garden on Saturday March 25.
The workshop is for community members who would love to reduce their water bills and also have a source of free water during drought conditions. Lou Kellogg, a master gardener, will teach participants how to install a rainwatercatchment container; partipants will each make a rain barrel to take home and use. The workshop fee is $55 and includes materials, a 55-gallon rain barrel and spout.
The San Antonio Botanical Garden is located at 555 Funston Place. The workshop begins at 9:30 a.m. and continues until 12 p.m. For more information and to register, visit www.sabot.org.
