BlueBarrel Hands-On Rainwater Catchment Installation Workshop
BlueBarrel’s Hands-On Workshops engage community members in building a BlueBarrel System at a real-life installation site! Participants learn the principles and practices of rainwater harvesting and gain hands-on experience in outdoor plumbing assembly, ventilation and filtration practices, downspout tie-in and overflow.
In this workshop at a Berkeley, CA residence, participants will work together to build a 12-barrel (660 gallon!) BlueBarrel System. Each participant will have a hand in construction — No prior experience is necessary!
You will gain the skills necessary to build your very own BlueBarrel System. As a special offer, all workshop participants will qualify for a 10% discount on their very own BlueBarrel DIY Kit!
