If you are looking to purchase a rain barrel but haven't been able to afford one, this is the workshop for you. Not only are the barrels affordable, you'll get instructions on how to install them. We had intended on getting one, but since we are selling our home, we will wait until we move. Here's the info from the Fort Loudoun Lake Association:
The next rain barrel workshop will be held on Thursday, September 23 from 6-8 p.m. at Ijams Nature Center. We are capping the workshop at 30 barrels, so please let me know as soon as possible if you’ll be able to attend and how many barrels you’ll need, because we do have to prepare the barrels in advance. This is a first-come, first-served situation, so be sure to reply as soon as you can. Also, if you have any friends or family who would be interested, feel free to pass the information on to them. The cost is $40 per barrel, all equipment included. This time, we’ll be able to present the full Tennessee Yards and Neighborhoods program on how to build, install and maintain the barrels as well as discuss the many ways in which they are beneficial. Thanks, and please call our office if you have any questions.
