Rain Barrel Workshop

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

The cost to purchase a barrel and kit is only $60 per barrel, and will be held at the date and location 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.  

  • May 15, 2021, The Mariners' Museum, 12 noon to 2 pm,

100 Museum Drive, Newport News, VA 23601

For more information, call the Newport News Virginia Cooperative Extension Office at 757-591-4838.  If you registered 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!
