Make your own rain barrel

Bring a buddy and learn how you can save money and water by building your own rain barrel. No power tools needed.
The Ottawa Soil and Water Conservation District and Schedel Arboretum & Gardens are partnering to bring you the workshop at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 3, at Schedel, 19255 W. Portage River South Road, in Elmore.

The Workshop will feature: “hands-on” experience, helpful tips, your very own 55-gallon fully assembled (by you and your buddy) rain barrel, a chance to leisurely walk through the beautiful gardens and a presentation by Bench’s Greenhouse, Elmore.
The cost of the workshop will be $70 per rain barrel assembled and will include entry into the beautiful Schedel gardens. Seats are limited to 20 rain barrels so call now to reserve a spot for you and your buddy. If you cannot bring a friend, just give us a call and our staff may be able to assist you.
