Learn how to harvest rainwater for all your garden needs and to combat stormwater pollution in your community by constructing a rain barrel! The City of North Olmsted, Cleveland Metroparks and Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District will host a rain barrel workshop on Saturday, April 28, 2018 beginning at 10:00 AM at the Cleveland Metroparks Rocky River Nature Center. Each participant will construct a rain barrel to take home. The $60 fee includes instruction and all materials, including a 60-gallon barrel and a downspout diverter. Registration is required by April 23.
A rain barrel is a container used to collect and store rainwater that would otherwise be lost to runoff and likely diverted to a storm drain. Collected water may then be used to water lawns and gardens.
