Build Your Own Rain Barrel in Williston July 25th

rain barrel workshop

The Town of Williston is offering a build-your-own rain barrel event July 25th. Here’s the announcement:

Summer is officially here! It’s the perfect time of year to consider incorporating the use of a rain barrel for lawn and landscaping needs. The Chittenden County Stream Team and the Town of Williston are hosting a workshop in Williston to help you build your own rain barrel. This workshop is meant for individuals interested in saving water and reducing stormwater runoff, which can carry pollutants to our streams and Lake Champlain. The water you save in a rain barrel can be used for watering lawns and flower gardens, washing your car or tools. Save water, save money, and save our streams all at the same time! In the workshop you will learn how to properly maintain and install a rain barrel and take home your own barrel.

When: Saturday, July 25th at 10 am
