The James River Association is co-hosting a virtual rain barrel workshop with the Science Museum of Virginia and RVAH2O through its River Hero Homes program on September 13, 2021!
Each workshop is $35 and comes with a 55-gallon drum and rain barrel assembly kit from The Rain Barrel Depot. 55-gallon drums and assembly kits must be picked up at the Science Museum of Virginia (2500 W. Broad Street, RIchmond, Virginia) on Monday, September 13, 2021, between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm. Instructions for assembling a rain barrel and installing it will be provided to participants virtually.
Rain barrels are made out of heavy-duty plastic 55-gallon drums and can be connected to downspouts to harvest rainwater. Harvested rainwater can be used to irrigate gardens and landscaping. 55-gallon drums are generously provided to the James River Association by Coca-Cola.
**IMPORTANT** You MUST have a vehicle capable of bringing the rain barrel(s) home with you! Dimensions of each barrel are 22.5" x 33.5"
