What: Learn how to install rain barrels for your home by helping us install some at the UUCPA in Palo Alto. Then, do it at home to save hundreds of gallons of municipal water so fish in the Tuolumne River can use it instead! Water with chlorine-free rainwater that plants love. Slow downspout water, reduce flooding, and recharge groundwater. All ages are welcome at this hands-on workshop!
Who: Interested in learning how to catch rain water from your roof for your garden? Children under 12 require an accompanying adult unless prior approval is obtained from the workday supervisor.
Where: We'll meet at the UUCPA, 505 E. Charleston Rd, Palo Alto.
Please bring: A reusable water bottle and dress for outdoor work (sturdy shoes and long pants recommended). We provide gloves, tools, and snacks.
