All the rain we've been having the past week or so has me thinking the idea of a rain barrel is a pretty good one. And in Alpharetta, a few lucky people who are quick to register can pay just $35 for a rain barrel – and get taught how to install and use it.
Alpharetta announced in a news release today that it is joining with Fulton County Public Works Water Services to invite North Fulton residents – not just Alpharettans – to a “make and take” rain barrel workshop.
Make & Take Rain Barrel Workshop
- Tuesday, Aug. 28, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
- Alpharetta Engineering/Public Works Department
1790 Hembree Road, Alpharetta, 30009.
- $35, includes rain barrel and all supplies
- Pre-register by calling 678-297-6200. Space is limited.
Harvesting rain water is an excellent water source for lawns and plants. The release said participants will receive a 55-gallon rain barrel and ideas on how to install one.
