With the prevailing water shortages, there is a need to be creative when it comes to conserving water. Many are keen to use rainwater as their supply during the rainy season. Fortunately, there are numerous workshops on rainwater harvesting that teach people to take advantage of the free resource.
Attending these workshops is a great idea for anyone that wants to conserve water and harvest enough water for irrigation. Interested participants learn to make a device for harvesting rainwater known as rain barrels.
These devices are used to collect rainwater which is intended for landscape irrigation. They catch and contain rainwater; hence, reducing soil erosion and stormwater runoff. Besides, a lot of rainwater is collected in barrels and this could help you save on water bills for irrigating your plants.
For this reason, it is very crucial to attend a rainwater harvesting workshop. The workshops teach people how to create rain barrels, connect them and put up overflow accommodation. Participants are also taken through the safety instructions for maintenance and tips for painting barrels. By the end of the training, you will learn to make more rain barrels and you won’t have to buy them anymore.
