Howard County Master Gardeners and Howard County Watershed Stewards work together to host a series of Rain Barrel workshops from April to September. Howard County government provides a limited number of free 55-gal barrel with cut-outs for fittings, to be used for a rain barrel (one barrel per address, please). New this year, the County is providing the fittings as well while supplies last. Resident must assemble the rain barrel and the rain barrel must be used in Howard County.

Recipients of a rain barrel must fill out a pledge form and take part in a short, informal workshop. After the workshop, the recipient will know how to assemble and maintain the rain barrel. Workshops are ongoing, stop by between 9 am and 11 am to learn about rain barrels and to ask questions. Registration is not required.

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.
