Rainwater Harvesting 101 Webinar: A (Rain) Barrel of Fun & Learning
Are you interested in having an eco-friendly garden? Join for a one hour webinar as we learn how to capture and harvest rainwater from your roof. We’ll discuss how rain barrels help in pollution prevention, their many benefits, what you need to get started at home, and how you can save money with the installation of a new rain barrel with the countywide rebate. We’ll also explore how rain gardens can be used in your home to help decrease water usage and property flooding using native plants.
We’ll have a live prize drawing during the webinar where one lucky attendee will win a free 50 gallon rain barrel! Note: eligible participants must reside within the Bay Area Water Supply & Conservation Agency service area. All participants will also be sent an exclusive 20% discount certificate for a rain barrel with Hassett Hardware.
This workshop is brought to you by the City of Burlingame, the Bay Area Water Supply & Conservation Agency, and Flows To Bay the San Mateo Countywide Water Pollution Prevention Program. For a list of upcoming free landscape education classes in San Mateo County, visit bawsca.org/classes.
Rain gardens, permeable pavement, and rainwater harvesting are all examples of green infrastructure. These systems can provide habitat, mitigate flood risk, and protect the San Francisco Bay from water pollution by mimicking nature to capture, treat, and retain stormwater runoff.
