Art & design for eco-change: Water harvesting ideas for form & function

Everyone likes the idea of rain barrels, especially those made from reused containers, yet not everyone is enamored with the appearance of these drums. University of Akron art education professor Dr. Elisa Gargarella along with Artist/Educators Daniel Coffield and Joe Czalkiewicz will share techniques for creating custom rain barrels that are not only functional but also beautiful.

Dr. Jean Marie Hartman, Asssociate Professor, Department of Landscape Architecture at Rutgers University will also present strategies in garden design that use native plants to help support heavy run-off water sites and rain gardens.
