The class presented by Rain Barrels Intl. will discuss the importance of rainwater harvesting, the benefits of a rain barrel, the installation process, helpful methods to conserve water on your property, and rebate information. The Metropolitan Water District is currently offering all Long Beach residents a rain barrel rebate of $35.00 per rain barrel. This rebate is good for two (2) rain barrels per household. Rain Barrels are available for purchase at a community event price of $65.00. + tax. These rain barrel purchases along with your reservation for your spot at the seminar should be made in advance. More information can be obtained at the website below or contact Rain Barrels Intl. at 919 602-6316. The rain barrel distribution will be from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m..
Rain Barrels are currently selling for $129.00 to $169.00 in Southern California retail stores. Attendance at the workshop is not required to purchase your rain barrel at the discounted price nor are you required to make a purchase to attend the FREE class.
