DIY Rain Barrel Workshop

Join us to learn more about rain barrels and build your own barrel to take home after the workshop! The fee for registration is only $69 per barrel. The workshop lasts approximately 90 minutes.

About our Workshops

You will receive a 55-gallon barrel along with the tools and parts necessary to build your rain barrel. You can build up to four barrels.

Experience with power tools helps, but isn’t necessary. Blue Water Baltimore will provide assistance as you go through the steps to build a rain barrel.

Our workshops are a great group activity for friends and family, especially if you plan on building more than one barrel. Due to limited workspace and power tool usage, we ask that you use discretion when inviting others, especially children.

Finished Product

You will leave the workshop with your rain barrel ready to be installed. During the workshop, Blue Water Baltimore will provide instructions on how to install it yourself. Make sure the vehicle you use can accommodate the rain barrel you will be bringing home with you – the barrel will fit in the backseat of an average sedan, but small vehicles like Smart Cars and Mini Coopers are too small to fit the rain barrel.
