August 2024 Rain Barrel Workshop

9:00 am-1:00 pm | Galveston’s Own Farmers Market

Galveston Bay Foundation’s Rain Barrel Program works in partnership with Coca-Cola Southwest Beverages to conserve water and reduce stormwater runoff, pollution, and bacteria entering Galveston Bay.

Join us on Sunday, August 4th from 9 am to 1 pm at Galveston’s Own Farmers Market ( 3304 Market St, Galveston, TX 77550). The workshop will consist of a supply pickup, hands-on presentation, and Q&A session with Galveston Bay Foundation staff. The presentation will discuss water conservation tools like Water My Yard, the environmental benefits of reducing freshwater usage and collecting rainwater, as well as proper rain barrel preparation, installation instructions and tips. Show up early or stick around after the event to enjoy all that the Farmers Market has to offer.

Participants who purchase a rain barrel and kit can pick up their supplies between 9am and 1pm and opt to stay for the hands-on installation presentation at 11 am. Pre-registration is required to reserve a barrel but the event itself is free and open to all, so please bring family and friends.
