Rain Barrel Workshop

Rain barrels are a great way to reduce stormwater runoff and to save water for a dry spell. If you have gutters on your house, you may be able to collect up to 55 gallons of water in rain barrels to irrigate your garden. We invite you to learn more from Barbara McAdam, an Urban Horticulture Program Specialist at the University of Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) Extension Miami-Dade office on Thursday, August 5 from 5-6:30 p.m. This is a hybrid event, so in-person attendance is limited to the first 15 guests. Contact to reserve your in-person seat (first come, first served) or RSVP online now!
