JRA presents Rain Barrel Workshop:A River Hero Home Month event


Do your part to protect the James River! The workshop costs $35, and includes the rain barrel, hardware, a native plant, and an RVA Native Plant Guide. Registration is limited to City of Richmond residents. Space is limited, so register today! James River Association staff and volunteers will assist you with the construction.

Rain barrels are made out of heavy-duty plastic 55-gallon drums and connected to the gutter downspouts of residential homes, collecting rain runoff. Storm water moves quickly over the paved surfaces in urban environments, picking up pollutants on its way to the James River. By collecting water from a rooftop to be used in a garden later, the total amount of contaminants being deposited into the river is decreased!
