Rain Barrel Workshop - signup deadline is TODAY

St. Matthew will be offering a Rain Barrel Workshop this Thursday, May 10 at 6:00 p.m. A rain barrel is simply a container placed at the end of a downspout that collects and stores rooftop rainwater. An average size house may shed over 30,000 gallons of rainwater in a year - or over 300 gallons of water in just one rainfall event.

Barrels are constructed from recycled plastic 55-gallon food grade containers (donated by DelGrosso Foods, Inc as available) and can be painted or decorated to match your home!Attend a Workshop and pay just $35 for your own rain barrel. Pick up a Barrel Kit (unassembled) for $50.00. Purchase a Preassembled Barrel for only $60.00

Call the church office (814-793-2413) to register for the Workshop TODAY, May 6, 2012 or contact the Conservation District to arrange to purchase a barrel or kit.
