Build Your Own Rain Barrel Workshop

August 16th, 2022 10AM-12PM Location: UGA Extension Camden County

You are invited to join the Georgia Coastal Management Program in partnership with Coca-Cola United for an upcoming Build Your Own Rain Barrel Workshop. 

Did you know:  A rain barrel can save most homeowners 2,000 gallons of water each year which can be used for watering gardens, washing cars and other projects around the house? 

At the workshop, rain barrel installation, maintenance and safety are discussed, along with instructions for the conversion kit which includes ALL parts needed for installation. Staff will be on hand with the hardware supplies and tools necessary to help you assemble the barrels on-site – ready to take home and use.  The conversion kit uses a diverter system which eliminates the need for cutting off gutter downspouts, mosquitoes and over-flow valves.  

The workshop will be held from 10:00am-12:00pm at the UGA Extension Camden County office located at 1409 Georgia Avenue | Woodbine, GA 31569.

Registration fee includes the 35 gallon drum, instructions and all supplies needed to build your own rain barrel.  Please note that if registering for this workshop you must attend the educational presentation and construct your rain barrel at the workshop. Registration will be limited and is available on a first come basis.
