Drought or deluge, Philadelphia can’t seem to catch a break when it comes to water issues.  Installing a rain barrel outside of your home or business can help conserve water when we need it most and offset storm water runoff when it rains.   Plus, building your own is a lot of fun!

Come join us at the NKCDC Garden Center for the first in a series of DIY rain barrel workshops led by our good friends at Sustainable 19125. If you are interested in  building your own rain barrel (no experience required!), the date to remember is Saturday, October 16 from 12:00-3:00 PM.  Donations are suggested to cover the cost of materials, but no one will be turned away due to a lack of funds.

Please RSVP for this workshop by sending an e-mail to sustainable19125@gmail.com or by calling Jamie or Toby at 215 427 0650 x 133.

And if you can’t make it to this workshop, don’t worry!  Just send an e-mail to the folks at Sustainable 19125 and they’ll happily keep you in the loop about all the fun and free upcoming rain barrel events.
