rain barrel
workshops

For 2023, we will conduct "mini" workshops that will demonstrate how your rain barrel should be assembled.  All workshops will start at 10:00 am and should last no more than 1 hour.  Below is a video that also shows this assembly process.  Also, there are documents you will find useful for rain barrel preparation, water conservation and gardening. Our members will also help you load your barrel.

Please use the Pay Now button below to register for the workshop of your choice.  A rain barrel kit costs only $60. 

Once registered, you will be notified of any changes in dates, times and locations. 

For more information, call the Newport News Virginia Cooperative Extension Office at 757-591-4838.  

 The 05/27/2023 Rain Barrel Workshop is now closed.  Our last workshop will be held 09/09/2023 at the Brittingham Mid-town Community Center.  Register early as there are only a few barrels remaining!
