Learn how to build your own rain barrel (or rain barrel series!) using simple tools!
Rainbarrels are a great way to store water for the weeks in the Summer when there can be long periods of drought. Having rainbarrels on hand will reduce your use of expensive drinking water for your food forest. In this workshop, you will learn to build a simple rainbarrel system using inexpensive materials and tools you already have at home. Our instructor, Babette Wils, built a food forest in her back yard; owns Big Foot Food Forest, a new permaculture farm in Montague, Mass.; manages the Boston Food Forest Coalition workshops, and is an experienced permaculture teacher.
