Rain Barrel Workshops

Blogging about litter and environmental concerns has led me to many different groups concerned with different environmental issues. Unemployment has done the same thing for me. A group who I have recently been exposed to is Cumberland River Compact. Over the past two years, I have met environmentalists, who talk about their rain barrels. I laugh inside because we sometimes have periods of draught in the summers here. Anyway, I’m going to explore the world of rain barrels. Why don’t you join me?

Here’s the information:

The [Cumberland River] Compact’s Project Blue Streams will be hosting Rain Barrel Workshops at several locations in 2009.

All you have to do is sign up and join the over 1500 Nashvillians who have already participated in the workshop and enhanced their yard with a rain barrel.

There are so many benefits to installing a rain barrel in your yard – let the Compact give you a hand this Spring!
