The cost to purchase a barrel and kit is only $60 per barrel, and will be held at the dates, times and locations listed below.  Also, you will be provided with a link to a video to help you with assembly.  You can also do a search on YouTube for Newport News Go Green Youtube Rain Barrel Workshop.  Our remaining "drive-throughs" scheduled for 2022 are:
