Build Your Own Rain Barrel Workshop

Rain Barrel

Celebrate Earth Day with the WKU Glasgow GreenToppers.

Are you interested in water conservation? Do you have a garden or flower beds around your home that require seasonal watering? Join us to build a rain barrel that will collect rain water directly from your house’s gutter system. Store up the water to use when you need it instead of using your hose. The barrels are created from recycled material and can hold 55 gallons of water. Every little bit helps so come out and celebrate Earth Day with us!
