Rain Barrel Workshop

Newport News Waterworks, in cooperation with the Newport News Master Gardeners and the Newport News Recycling Office, will conduct periodic rain barrel "drive-up" distributions for the public.  This is due to high public demand at our previous distribution.

The cost to purchase a barrel and kit is only $60 per barrel, and will be held November 7th in the Pavilion of the Brittingham Center starting at 12: 00 pm in the Pavilion!  This will be the last distribution held by us for this year.   Also, you will be provided with a link to a video for assembly.  You can also do a search on YouTube for Newport News Go Green Youtube Rain Barrel Workshop.

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 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.
