Come learn the basics and benefits of rainwater harvesting and the effects stormwater has on the environment. Participants will learn how to collect and utilize rainwater at home and have the opportunity to construct their very own rain barrel. This class is hands on "DIY" and each participant will take home a barrel. There will be no cost for the barrel but there will be a fee of $17.00 to cover the cost of the parts. Registration and the fee must be paid by Friday, April 7, 2017 to be eligible to build your barrel.

Registration will be held by the City of Desoto. Please email scarmichael@desototexas.gov. Deadline to register is Friday, April 21, 2017. However, only those who have registered and paid the fee by Friday, April 7 will receive the  parts necessary to build the barrel. We will have a maximum of 25 barrels available. You may bring someone with you to help you with the project. One barrel per house. Each person must be registered in order to take home a barrel.

As of 3/9/17 there are 20 people registered for this class out of a maximum of 25.
