Broadview Heights Rain Barrel Workshop

Learn how to harvest rainwater for all your garden needs and to combat storm water pollution in your community by constructing a rain barrel!  The City of Broadview Heights and Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District will host a rain barrel workshop for residents on Thursday, April 29, beginning at 6:30 PM at the Arts & Crafts Room at Broadview Center, 9543 Broadview Rd.  Each participant will construct a rain barrel to take home.  The $60 fee includes instruction and all materials, including a 55-gallon barrel and a downspout diverter.  Registration is required. 

  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. 

  To register, or for more information, call or email Rocky River Watershed Coordinator Jared Bartley at 216-524-6580 x14 or jbartley@cuyahogaswcd.org

  The Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District's mission is to promote conservation of land and aquatic resources in a developed environment through stewardship initiatives, education programs, and technical assistance. www.cuyahogaswcd.org
