Installation of rain barrels in your yard will enable you to take an active role in reducing flooding and pollution in local waterways.  Install rain barrels under your gutter’s downspout to harvest rain water from your roof. Each rain barrel holds approximately 50 gallons. You can install them singly on hook them up in tandem to reserve even more water. Use the water to save money and save water when you irrigate your gardens with it during times of low rain. 
In case you miss the workshop or are unable to attend, rain barrels are also for sale at local garden centers for approximately $100.
