Take advantage of the many benefits of rain water harvesting at a Spring Rain Barrel Workshop. The City of Grove City and Keep Grove City Beautiful are hosting a rain barrel workshop from 7 to 8:30 p.m., Monday, April 19, for residents of Grove City and Jackson Township only at the Eagle Pavilion, 3899 Orders Road.

Participants will learn tips for saving time and money by using a rain barrel to collect untreated water for indoor and outdoor plants, birdbaths, garden and lawns; and how doing so helps prevent runoff from washing pollutants into our local waterways.

Workshop topics include understanding water conservation, how this leads to a more sustainable community, and the use, maintenance and proper installation of rain barrels. The workshop fee includes an installation-ready, 50-gallon barrel with diverter.

The cost is $60, register using activity code 3092104.02 for charcoal or 3092104.03 for the granite color.

       

Participants should be prepared to take the barrel home at the conclusion of the workshop.

Registration is required. Register by phone at 614-277-3050 or online. The deadline to register is 5 p.m., Thursday, April 15.
