In 2022, Waterworks will once again partner with the Newport News Master Gardeners, the Newport News Department of Public Works, and the Mariners' Museum to offer rain barrel making workshops. The cost to purchase a barrel and kit is only $60 per barrel, and will be held at the dates, times and locations listed below. Also, you will be provided with a link to a video to help you with assembly. You can click here to view the video ow to assemble your rain barrel.
All workshops will be held at 10:00 am. If you are registered, you will be notified of any changes in dates, times and locales. For more information, call the Newport News Virginia Cooperative Extension Office at 757-591-4838. If you register to participate in this event, please be aware that you will need to take your rain barrel home in a vehicle large enough to accommodate a 55 gallon drum. Actually, one drum this size is able to fit in the back seat of a Volkswagen!
