Rain Barrel Workshops

Build Your Own Rain Barrel Workshops

The Georgia Coastal Management Program has partnered with Coca-Cola United to provide Make-Your-Own Rain Barrel Workshops for residents in coastal Georgia.  A rain barrel can save most homeowners 2,000 gallons of water each year which can be used for watering gardens, washing cars and other projects around the house.  Workshop participants will learn the importance of water conservation and the basics of rain water harvesting.  They will also get the chance to construct their own rain barrel to take home with them that day!

The inaugural workshop was held at Coastal Resources Division on January 19, 2012.This is a photo of an installed rain barrel.
