  1. It is the workshop participant’s responsibility to check with their landlord or homeowner’s association before installing a rain barrel.
  2. You must have at least one downspout gutter in order to have this type of rain barrel system work for you. A small hole (~2in.) in your downspout will have to be made. Light construction will be required after the workshop at the desired property.
  3. The workshop will be held outside on uneven terrain. There may also be instances of lifting or moving the rain barrel (~15-30 lbs. EMPTY). Please contact us if you will need any assistance


  1. Sunblock, sunglasses and/or hat
  2. Rain barrel decoration ideas for your 55-gallon barrel (paint, paintbrushes, and sponges will be provided)
  3. Water bottle
  4. Clothes to get dirty/paint on (an old apron to put over your clothes works well)
  5. Gloves and eye protection
