DeKalb County, GA, June 5, 2017 – The Post Reports – Keep DeKalb Beautiful will be hosting a Rain Barrel Workshop on Wednesday, June 7, at 6:30 p.m., at Mason Mill Park located at 1340 McConnell Drive, Decatur. The session will use kits and recycled barrels, and participants will take home a completed project.
“Several metro-Atlanta counties, including DeKalb, are in a Level 2 drought, which mandates outdoor water restrictions,” says the County in a release. “Rain barrels harvest roof runoff, which can be used to irrigate landscape plants or gardens. Just 1 inch of rain on a 1,000-square-foot roof provides 623 gallons of water.”
The rain barrel workshop is $10 and limited to 25 participants. To register, call Keep DeKalb Beautiful at 404-298-4080.
