Feed your garden good water and reduce harmful run-off. Learn from Evan Marks about simple ways you can start harvesting the rain passively today. Understand the tools to build, install, and maintain a rain barrel.
Get the most out of every drop! Harvesting the rain is a centuries old practice. While the methods of harvesting are more advanced today, the intention is the same, save precious rainwater! In this lecture hosted by Evan Marks, we'll learn all about rainwater harvesting techniques. Understand how easy it is to install and operate a rain barrel plus other ways to harvest the rain passively. Rain barrel and all necessary parts will be available for purchase.
The benefits of harvesting the rain increase with every drop. Just 1” of rain yields 62 gallons/100 sq ft of roof space. When you consider the average roof size for an Orange County home is 3,000 sq ft, that’s a collection of over 1800 gallons/1” of rain!
