Two single-session classes about installing and operating household rain barrels will be on Tuesday, May 3 and Monday, May 9. There is a $30 program fee, which includes the rain barrel.
As in prior years, the class will be presented by students enrolled in Haine Middle School’s program “The Rain Makers.” For this class, Cranberry and the school have partnered with Home Depot to secure the barrels at well below market price.
Rain barrels, which attach to a home’s downspout, provide a straightforward method for capturing as much as 55 gallons of rainwater runoff for later use in lawn and garden irrigation. The rain barrel included with the class fee is valued at $150.
Registration for the class is available at the Township’s Customer Service desk. Space is limited.
