Rain Check Workshop: How to Get a Rain Barrel + more (2017)

March 4, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Bartram’s Garden is hosting a Rain Check Workshop. Come to this workshop to learn how you can get a free rain barrel from Philadelphia Water! Reduced pricing for downspout planters, rain gardens, depaving, and permeable pavers will also be offered. Philadelphia Water (PWD) believes that everyone can make a difference in transforming Philadelphia into a greener city with clean water.

PWD’s Rain Check program gives Philadelphia residents an opportunity to reduce pollution that would otherwise end up in our creeks and rivers. Rain Check is managed by PHS, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, who will be hosting the workshop.  The workshop presentation will be one hour with time afterwards for questions.

This event will be held indoors, rain or shine! For more information and to register to attend, please visit www.phillywatersheds.org/raincheck or call PHS Information Services: 215-988-1698.
