I've had quite a few posts lately about why and how to get rain barrels in the Metro DC area. The whys, of course, are to capture and store rainwater to help conserve water in times of drought. And to help prevent stormwater runoff. Many of the hows were explained in this post, the Rain Barrel Response.
Here's another upcoming workshop, and this one gives you the opportunity to win a free rain barrel.
Where: Gaithersburg Youth Center in Olde Towne, 301 Teachers Way, Gaithersburg, MD 20877
Date: June 28, 2011
The workshop is being promoted by the Muddy Branch Alliance , an all volunteer group interested in preserving the health of the local waterway known as the Muddy Branch.
Jennifer Willoughby of the Interstate Commission on the Potomac River Basin will present the workshop.
There will be a drawing at the end of the workshop for a rain barrel!
