Learn how to harvest rainwater for all your garden needs and to combat storm water pollution in your community by constructing a rain barrel! The City of Berea, Rocky River Watershed Council and Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District will host a rain barrel workshop for residents on Thursday, July 11, 2013 beginning at 6:30 PM at the Coe Lake Pavilion behind Berea City Hall, 11 Berea Commons. Each participant will construct a rain barrel to take home. The $60 fee includes instruction and all materials, including a 55-gallon barrel and a downspout diverter. Registration is required by July 5th. A rain barrel is a container used to collect and store rainwater that would otherwise be lost to runoff and likely diverted to a storm drain. Collected water may then be used to water lawns and gardens. To register, or for more information, call Rocky River Watershed Coordinator Jared Bartley at 216-524-6580 x14.
