2017 Rain Barrel Workshop- Connecting Colorado to Water
Registration is closed for this event
Last year it became legal to collect water from your gutters to water your lawn, garden, and flowers on your own property. Since then, rain barrels have been all the rage, and Colorado residents are all getting excited about this new way to garden and save on their water bill at the same time!
The Colorado Foundation for Water Education is partnering with River Network, MillerCoors, and Blue Moon Brewing Company to host a Rain Barrel Workshop where participants will actually build their own rain barrel and get to take it home with them! Rain barrels can cost hundreds of dollars to purchase in a store, and that doesn’t even come with the satisfaction of making it yourself.
For only $40.00 per barrel, you and your family can come make one of your own! Max five people per barrell and one per household please. We will have all of the tools and materials that you will need to start watering your lawn with rain water.
A couple things you need to know:
We will begin building rain barrels at 4:30, but come at anytime to share in the fun and celebrate being awesome water citizens. We have a private room till 7:00 and will provide light appetizers, but the brewery is open for dinner and drinks during and after that time. We will have a raffle at 7:00. All participants recieve one free ticket, with an option to purchase additional tickets. *Note: If you are not at the workshop to claim your rain barrel by 5:00, then your barrel will be given away with no refund.
Cost: $40 per Rain Barrel (You can come as a family and all work on one barrel, if you wish to make more than one barrel, you must pay for multiple barrels)
$20 per Water Friend- If you want to come and enjoy some drinks and appetizers you are welcome to join the fun. We are asking for a $20 to help cover appetizers. All Water Friends will also recieve a raffle ticket for an opportunity to win a GOPro Hero 4 and other awesome prizes. All funds raised are to support our programming at the Colorado Foundation for Water Educaiton.
