Rain barrel workshop- hands-on (Oakland)

Date range: 
March 15, 2014 - 11:00am to 4:00pm

Come learn about simple, backyard rainwater harvesting systems. We'll cover common types of rainharvesting systems, storage options, system components, how to size a system, and irrigation methods.

We'll install a rain barrel system from repurposed food-grade barrels and a "first flush diverter". This system will:

  • provide storage
  • reduce stormwater runoff and sewage overflows
  • recharge aquifers
  • increase your backyard harvest
  • lower your water bill

Cost: $30- $100 sliding scale, limited work trade spots available

Location: Oakland, CA (exact address provided after registration)
