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!
