Join the Americorps Watershed Ambassador and staff from The Watershed Institute for a virtual workshop about rainwater harvesting! Learn about water quality in NJ, how installing a rain barrel helps protect water quality, and other 'river-friendly' actions you can implement at home. You will also build a rain barrel with The Watershed Ambassador's virtual instruction and guidance.
Here's how it works:
1. Register below for the rain barrel workshop
2. Select a time slot to pick up your rain barrel materials from The Watershed Institute (we will provide all materials needed for the rain barrel)
3. During the selected time slot, pick up your rain barrel "kit" from The Watershed Institute. The rain barrel pickup location will be outside The Watershed Institute and spaced apart
4. Tune in via video to our live rain barrel build on June 6 from 1-3 to put together your rain barrel! You'll be able to ask questions while you build. If you can't make it on June 6, we will send out the video recording to all participants.
The workshop requires some light use of tools and will be guided by Watershed staff. You will need the following tools at home to build the barrel: a digital device and internet to watch the building instructions, disposable gloves for applying silicone/caulk, channel locks, 8- or 10-inch adjustable wrench , and a 48-inch bungee cord.
$50 registration fee includes all materials needed for the rain barrel, but you will need to acquire the tools listed above on your own prior to the build. The fee is per barrel, so groups of multiple people can build one barrel for $50.
