We will use rainwater harvesting in the ecovillage. This usually means catching water from even the smallest roof. Although a rain barrel is not the appropriate size for serious rainwater harvesting at your home, it is appropriate for outbuildings, so we have included it in the skill building series.
Dr. Dotty Woodson, Extension Program Specialist - Water Resources will be teaching this class and will provide participants the opportunity to construct a 55 gallon rain barrel as well as discuss installing an efficient irrigation system. The rain barrel is yours to take home!
Cost is $40.00 for each barrel and they measure 24 inches in diameter and 36 inches tall. Bring a vehicle large enough to haul your rain barrel(s) home.
