Rain Barrel Workshop

Newport News Waterworks, in cooperation with the Newport News Master Gardeners and the Newport News Recycling Office, conduct periodic rain barrel workshops for the public.  There will be a rain barrel workshop also held at this event.  Here, you will learn about water conservation, recycling, the benefits of rain water and how to assemble and install your own rain barrel!

The cost to participate in this workshop is only $60 per barrel, and will be held in the Pavilion of the Brittingham Center starting at 1: 00 pm in the Pavilion!  This will be the last workshop held by us for this year.   Kits with parts will be available with your barrel.  Also, you will be provided with a link to a video for assembly.

Barrels are limited, so register early by calling the Newport News Virginia Cooperative Extension Office at 757-591-4838.  If you choose to participate in this event, please be aware that you will need to take your finished rain barrel home in a vehicle large enough to accommodate a 55 gallon drum.  Actually, one drum this size is able to fit in the back seat of a Volkswagen!   If you prefer, you may pay for your registration now by using the Pay Now button below.  You may also mail your check to our office address below.  Make your check payable to "NNMG".   Even though early registration for the workshops is preferred, we will be accepting payments for the workshops at the event.
