Rain Barrel Workshop — Hands-on (Oakland)

This event has passed.

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 re-purposed 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

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