Save Water and Money: Rain Barrel Workshop – Fri. August 19th

  |   WAWA News
Georgia’s historic drought and ongoing water supply concerns have continued to bring attention to the importance of water conservation and water-smart landscape and gardening practices. People every-where are seeking ways to minimize their water use, yet maintain an attractive landscape.  Rain barrels can be part of the solution. A properly installed and maintained rain barrel can save a homeowner up to 1300 gallons of water during the three summer months alone.
In collaboration with Keeping It Wild and the Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper, WAWA will host a Rain Barrel Workshop on Friday, August 19, 2011 from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm at the Outdoor Activity Center. The workshop, which includes an animated 40-minute presentation, will cover: water issues in metro Atlanta, how to save water in your home and garden, and how to install and maintain a rain barrel. Participants will receive a 60-gallon rain barrel that they will assemble and take home that night.
The cost of the workshop is $35 and includes the rain barrel. Space is limited so registration is required.  To register or to receive more information about the workshop, send an e-mail to info.wawaonline@gmail.com or call 404-752-5385.
The Outdoor Activity Center is located at 1442 Richland Rd. S.W. Atlanta, GA 30310.
