DOVER -- Last summer's drought could have left you low on water. If you would like to learn how to gather water from your resources at home and build your own rain barrel then call the Norma Johnson Center to sign-up today.
The Norma Johnson Center will be hosting a make and take it rain barrel workshop on Saturday, April 20 from 1 to 4 p.m. The workshop will show participants how to build their own rain barrels. A power point presentation about rain barrel use, maintenance and construction will be given. The rain barrels consist of a food grade 55-gallon barrel, overflow, spigot for water release and top entry hole to accommodate the water from the spouting. Cost will be $55 per barrel. All participants must pre-register. If you can't make it to the workshop, the Norma Johnson Center sells rain barrels throughout the year at a cost of $65 each. The program will be held in the yellow pole building, located on Route 39, three miles west of Dover Exit 83.
This event will be held in light rain or sunshine. For questions or directions, call Marsha Zoller, NJC director, at 330-339-7976, ext. 207.
The office for the Norma Johnson Center is located with Tuscarawas Soil and Water Conservation District.
