If you would like to harvest rain water for your garden and landscaping needs then this is an opportunity for you to construct our very own rain barrel. This old idea is making a big splash! Please have the proper transportation to take the barrel(s) home as they are approximately 53 gallons measuring 42″ in height and 24″ in diameter.
The Blue Ridge Soil & Water Conservation District will be conducting Rain Barrel Workshops on the following dates at the Essig Center on Technology Drive Rocky Mount, VA from 5:30 pm-7:30 pm:
April 6, 2023 (Thursday)
For additional information, register on line (one week prior to the scheduled class) at https://www.playfranklincounty.com
Please post dates for 2023 Rain barrel classes.
Thank you for contacting the Blue Ridge SWCD. The Rain Barrel and Tumbler-style Compost workshops will resume in the spring of 2023 through the Franklin County Parks and Recreation Department under “Life Skills”. We look forward to having you join us!
