DIY Rain Barrel and Rain Gardens class
Why plant rain gardens? The news has recently been saturated (pun intended) with water-related headlines about elevated nitrate levels and localized flooding from heavy rainfall and stormwater runoff. Toxic algae continues to be a problem at Buckeye Lake and around Ohio. Rain gardens allow rain water to slowly soak into the ground and reduce the amount of polluted stormwater flowing into nearby streams.
What is a rain barrel? Rain barrels collect and store rain water from rooftops, thereby reducing runoff and flooding during storms. Use rain barrel water to irrigate landscaping and gardens while saving money on water bills..
At the workshop, view a well-established rain garden; then learn how to design and install a rain garden on your property. Next, build your own rain barrel so you can start harvesting rain water from your roof.
Registration fee of $50 will be collected at workshop for the cost of the rain barrel. We can only accept cash or check for payment on site.

As Licking County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) strives to enhance and protect our
natural resources, especially water, we would like to take the first step in gaining community
involvement and ownership. As this goal is accomplished, the community will gain a better
understanding and respect for water, water quality, and why it is important to become stewards of the
land. Our community will also become more aware that they live in a watershed and everyday activities by
individuals affects the water everyone uses.
