Learn how to capture water using rain barrels, a simple drought-ready resource for your home and yard. Kim Titus from The Urban Farmer Store will focus on the most common rain barrel collection and distribution methods. This presentation offers visuals along with technical descriptions to get you started planning a rain barrel collection, storage, and distribution system. Titus will discuss selecting a storage barrel, including reuse and low-cost options, water use strategies for your yard, and sample calculations to figure how much water can be collected and how much an irrigated area needs. We will point you to additional resources like books, websites, and supplies that will help you gain confidence and go further. Event will take place in the Ecology Center Classroom and Building Exterior.
