Residents made awesome rain barrels last Thursday, June 26th at the Rain Barrel Workshop at Triangle Park. Each participant was given an empty plastic barrel, all the necessary hardware, and the supplies needed to put the rain barrel together. There were also stencils and paints available to decorate the rain barrels. By the end of the workshop, participants had some great-looking barrels to add to their yards and start collecting rain water in!
