New Barrel Workshops

We are happy to announce the 2011 series of rain barrel workshops to be held at the Chattanooga Area Food Bank.  These build your own rain barrel workshops offer the opportunity to construct your own 55-gallon plastic rain barrel that will be ready to hook up to your home’s rain gutter system.  The following dates and times are scheduled:

April 28th Saturday 10 AM

May 19th Saturday 10 AM

June 1st Friday 6 PM

July 28th Saturday 10 AM

August 18th Saturday 10 AM

Advance registration is required using the registration forms below.  Class sizes are limited and spots go quickly so don’t delay.  The fee is $25 which covers all costs to build a 55-gallon rain barrel.  You don’t need to bring any tools, but be prepared to get a little dirty and have a vehicle capable of transporting your rain barrel home with you.   For information on painting your rain barrel, go to this post.

If you are interested in signing up for one of the workshops listed above, please fill out the form for the date you would like to attend.  Please fill out just one form.  If the form for the date you want does not appear, it means the class is full and registration is closed.  Class size is limited, and advance registration is required.  You can contact the workshop organizers here if you have specific questions about the workshop.

The Chattanooga Area Food Bank is located at 2009 Curtain Pole Road, just off of Amnicola Highway.  Weather pending, the workshops will be held in the back at the Greenhouse Teaching Pavilion.

If the form for the workshop you would like to attend is gone, it means the workshop is full.
