Rain Barrel Workshops
The Beautification Unit facilitates (based on community requests) guided rain barrel workshops, during which county residents convert plastic drums into rain barrels. Workshops are hosted at various locations throughout the county, including parks, schools, churches and community gardens. During the workshop, rain barrel kits (plastic drum and installation kit) are provided at a cost of $25 per participant. A minimum of 25 participants is required for hosting a rain barrel workshop.
Past rain barrel workshop locations include:
• Mason Mill Park
• Brook Run Park
• City of Brookhaven
• Redan Middle School
• Arabia Mountain Park
• The Hamilton Recreation Center
