WMEAC is excited to be partnering with our friends at Broad Leaf Local Beer to host a Rain Barrel Workshop! If you’d like to build the rain barrel with us and learn about stormwater management, it’s only $50.
Communities can take action to manage stormwater and improve water quality. WMEAC wants to help West Michigan communities take this step by providing rain barrels and workshops on how to set up those rain barrels.
- This will be an outdoor event with a 10 person limit.
- Please wear a mask and maintain appropriate physical distancing.
- Tools and sanitizer will be provided, you may bring your own if preferred.
Rain barrels have been proven an effective and easy strategy for managing community stormwater issues and improving water quality. Through its rain barrel education programs, WMEAC provides low-cost rain barrels to the West Michigan community as a means of addressing water conservation and pollution issues in West Michigan.
All workshops include the necessary components to get your barrel working. You will need to purchase a “base” for your barrel separately (refer to rain barrel instructions). The workshop takes about 45 minutes. To get a rain barrel through our program, you must attend a workshop. We look forward to seeing you out there!
