Rain Barrel Workshop

July 10, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


If you want a morning that is barrels of fun, attend Convivium’s rain barrel workshop! Rain water is better for watering flowers, plants, and grass, and can help you save money and water. Rain barrels can be placed under your downspouts to capture runoff from the roof. Rain barrels purchased from retail sources can be expensive – come learn how to install, maintain, and build your own in this two hour, hands-on workshop! You will take home your own 55 gallon barrel, learning how to set it up and even add on more barrels for larger storage options.

Note: registration is good for 1 rain barrel, but up to 2 adults can attend per barrel and children are welcome to join, also. Purchase tickets here.


Instructor Bio: Korrin Schriver is a local science teacher who has a passion for sustainability and strives to model this in both her personal and professional life.  She and her husband are currently working on Convivium’s hydroponic and aquaponic system, along with starting up their own urban farm in Dubuque, ReEvolution Farms.  Repurposing materials and finding creative solutions to environmental problems are at the heart of all that Korrin does, including her classes.
