Let's catch rainwater! “What rain?!” you say? Even in an inch, 600 gallons are rushing off a 1000 square foot roof. Be prepared this winter, and get yourself some significant storage to account for the dry times.
In this hands-on workshop participants will learn the fundamentals of active rainwater harvesting systems. By the end of the workshop we will have installed a 1000 gallon rainwater harvesting tank for a fantastic Community Garden.
Topics to include:
Wet and dry systems
Calculating potential rainwater collection
Different types of tanks and cisterns
Best management practices
Getting the most out of a gravity fed system
This workshop will be held at Bayside Community Center.
We will have coffee/tea and snacks for participants!
