CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — Chesterfield County Environmental Engineering, in cooperation with the James River Soil and Water Conservation District and the Chesterfield Cooperative Extension Office, will hold two workshops on July 9 to teach county residents how to build rain barrels.
The workshops will be offered at 10 a.m. and noon at the Chesterfield County Fairgrounds, located at 10300 Courthouse Road. Each workshop will last approximately two hours.
These workshops will help residents build a rain barrel for their yard while they learn how rain barrels help to conserve water, reduce runoff and protect the environment. Not to mention, building a rain barrel can help residents save on their water bills by providing rainwater for their outdoor needs.
The registration fee is $50. Workshops fill up fast, so interested individuals should register early.
Register for the 10 a.m. workshop.
Register for the noon workshop.
