Howard County Mas­ter Gar­den­ers are host­ing  a series of Rain Bar­rel work­shops.  Howard County res­i­dents are eli­gi­ble to receive, from the County, a free 55-gal bar­rel with cut-outs for fit­tings, to be used for a rain bar­rel (one bar­rel per address, please).  Res­i­dent must buy fit­tings and assem­ble the rain bar­rel.  The rain bar­rel must be used in Howard County.

Recip­i­ent of a bar­rel must fill out a pledge form and take part in a Mas­ter Gardener-led work­shop.  After the work­shop, the recip­i­ent will know where to buy the fit­tings needed to com­plete the rain bar­rel and how to assem­ble and main­tain the rain bar­rel.  Work­shops are ongo­ing, as needed, 9 am – 11 am, most of the first and third Sat­ur­days, start­ing April 7 through Sep­tem­ber 15, 2018.  Advance reg­is­tra­tion is not required.

Dates for 2018 Rain Bar­rel Give­away and Work­shops:  April 7, May 5, May 19, June 2, June 16, July 7, July 21, August 4, August 18, Sep­tem­ber 1, Sep­tem­ber 15.

This work­shop will be held out­doors at the Howard County land­fill in Mar­riottsville.  The Mas­ter Gar­den­ers have a rain bar­rel and com­post demo area near the entrance to the res­i­dents drop off.
