RiverLink is hosting hands-on rain barrel workshops to help you reduce your water footprint.

On News 13 This Morning, Lauren Brigman talks live with Watershed Resources Coordinator for RiverLink, Ingrid Felsl while showing how to retrofit a rain barrel.

This Saturday, April 7th in Transylvania County, RiverLink is hosting a rain barrel workshop at the Cooperative Extension Office in Brevard. Each registrant will receive a 55-gallon rain barrel and installation kit that participants will assemble during the workshop and then take home.

Ingrid Felsl says the workshop is part of the River Network’s rain barrel program and companies like Coca-Cola and Rain Barrel Depot provide the supplies to retrofit the rain barrels.

Tickets for the workshop are $50 and include everything for your rain barrel. Click here to register, as space is limited.

There is also a rain barrel workshop coming to Asheville on Saturday, May 12th.

RiverLink is an Asheville non-profit focused on promoting the environmental and economic vitality of the French Broad River.
