Catch the Rain: DIY Rain Barrel Class
This class is sure to be a barrel of fun! Experts agree rainwater is the best water for your lawn, landscape or vegetable garden. Join us to learn simple techniques on how to divert, store and use one of nature’s best resources for the garden. We’ll also pour through the basics and benefits of rainwater harvesting and how it can reduce the effect your stormwater has on the environment.
Participants will have the option to pre-purchase and take home a 55-gallon rain barrel at $55 dollars each after the class. Rain barrels are recycled food-grade containers and are roughly 24” wide by 36” tall.
It's hard to keep a vegetable garden productive when the heat index is 105 degrees. But the cooler temperatures of autumn give residents of North Texas a chance for another season of crops before the cold of winter sets in. Join Shades of Green’s very own Tim Wardell as he gives his best fall vegetable gardening tips! At this FREE gardening clinic, you'll learn what vegetables perform best in a fall garden.
