A rain barrel workshop will be offered May 23 at Rainbow Gardens, 8516 Bandera Road in San Antonio, as part of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Backyard Basics series.
“A rain barrel is a container that collects and stores water for when you need it most,” said Troy Luepke, AgriLife Extension agent in Bexar County, who will present the program. “You can learn to conserve water to benefit your plants and garden.”
Luepke said attendees will make a rain barrel to take home and put to use. The Bexar County Master Gardener rainwater specialists will also provide information at the event.
The cost for the workshop is $50 per person and due by May 15. Attendance is limited, and reservations must be made with payment to Angel Torres, 210-467-6575 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
