Our River Hero Home program is hosting rain barrel workshops at our Lynchburg, James River Adventures, office.
Rain barrels are made out of heavy-duty plastic 55-gallon drums and can be connected to the gutter downspouts, collecting rain runoff. Each rain barrel comes with a kit to complete assembly (barrels are not sold ready-to-use) and are provided to us by Coca-Cola.
Workshops cost $35, and include a rain barrel and a rain barrel assembly kit.
Rain barrels can be picked up from James River Adventures (150 Rocky Hill Road
Madison Heights, VA 24572) on Saturday, April 17, 2021 between 9:00am - 12:00 pm. Each participant will receive a rain barrel assembly kit, as well as a link to a YouTube video that explains the assembly and installation process. James River Association staff will be onsite to answer any rain barrel questions. Masks and social distancing are required when picking up your rain barrel.
Space is limited to 15 spots.
