SAN ANTONIO – The Texas AgriLife Extension Service and San Antonio Botanical Garden will sponsor a “Rain Barrel Workshop” from 9 a.m.- noon on May 14.
The workshop will be held in the Education Building of the botanical garden, 555 Funston Place in San Antonio.
“Rainwater harvesting is a tried-and-true way to capture free water from rainfall,” said Bryan Davis, AgriLife Extension agent for agriculture and natural resources in Bexar County. “You can save money by collecting and storing rainwater and using it to irrigate your trees, shrubs and flower beds — even provide water to pets or wildlife.”
Davis and Bexar County Master Gardeners Lou Kellogg and Mary Fernandez will present the workshop.
The workshop will address the basics of rainwater harvesting for the home and garden, said presenters. Participants will learn how to make their own rain-collection barrel to take home, according to program instructors.
The fee is $55 per person, and checks should be made payable to Bexar County Master Gardeners.
The program is limited to 30 participants, so attendees are requested to RSVP by May 11.
