Take advantage of the many benefits of rain water harvesting in a Spring Rain Barrel Workshop. The City of Grove City and Keep Grove City Beautiful are hosting two rain barrel workshops for residents of Grove City and Jackson Township only at the Gantz Farmhouse, 2255 Home Road.

  • Wednesday, May 10, 6:30-7:30 p.m. – Activity #: 405361.10 (black) and 405361.11 (granite, decorative)
  • Wednesday, May 24, 6:30-7:30 p.m. – Activity #: 405361.16 (black) and 405361.17 (granite, decorative)

Save time and money as your rain barrel collects untreated water for indoor and outdoor plants, birdbaths, the garden and lawn. Create a more livable, sustainable community.

During the workshop, participants learn the importance of water conservation, and the use, maintenance and proper installation of rain barrels. The workshop fee of $55 includes a ready-to-be installed, 50-gallon black rain barrel with diverter; participants should be prepared to take it with them. For an additional $10, participants can upgrade to a 50-gallon decorative rain barrel with diverter.
