                                              Why Rain Barrels? Rain Barrels can
                                              be attached to down spouts to capture roof
                                              runoff. The water stored in the rain barrel
                                              can be used to water gardens or lawn. Rain
                                              barrels can also help control stormwater
                                              runoff, which causes erosion and degrades
                                              our streams.

                                              Program Benefits. Although rain barrels
                                                are available at retail and mail-order garden
                                                and home stores, they are not cheap! Through
                                                the popular “Build Your Own Rain Barrel”
                                                workshop program, your organization can host
                                                a workshop, and offer rain barrels at a reduced
cost to citizens. In addition to learning how to install and maintain their rain barrels,
workshop attendees will learn about their role in water conservation and water quality
protection. They will learn how they impact the Chesapeake Bay and other waterways.

What’s My Commitment? As a trainer for the “Build Your Own Rain Barrel”
workshop program, you commit to assist with one rain barrel workshop for citizens in the
next year. Trainers will learn tips on planning, budgeting, promoting, etc.
