    If I can get my tire changed in time on my motorcycle to make it, I will still come. It fell apart while riding this weekend and my bike is all I have with me here in TX so far.

    Hi. My understanding is that these are the usual "blue" 55 gallon rain barrels that one attaches to a gutter and they can be connected together. The event description located at: http://dallas.tamu.edu/courses/2013/april-22,-2013-107-rainwater-harvesting-rain-barrel-making/ does not include garden/irrigation systems ("This program covers the basics and benefits of rainwater harvesting and the effects stormwater has on the environment. Participants will learn how to collect and utilize rainwater at home and have the opportunity to construct their very own 55 gallon rain barrel"). However, the TX A&M AgriLife course programs do have gardening programs that do cover different watering systems (see the entire course list at http://dallas.tamu.edu/courses/).

    Will these be like rain barrel systems to attach to a gutter or some kind of stand alone system? Will they also be going over how to utilize the water in gardens/irrigation systems?

      You would need to contact Tx A&M AgriLife directly.

      If the school cannot do it, you can always get the scoop on how to do it from those attending.

    I spoke to someone at Tx A&M AgriLife and they said it is a hard plastic barrel and all the tools and whatnots are provided at the class. You can also learn how to connect multiple barrels but the class won't be doing that step.
