Cornell Cooperative Extension of Onondaga County is hosting a ?Make and Take? Rain Barrel Workshop, co-sponsored by the Spafford Area Garden Enthusiasts. Workshop participants will convert recycled food-grade containers into rain barrels that can then be attached to the end of a downspout to capture the rainwater that falls onto the rooftop. Rain barrels are becoming increasingly popular with homeowners because they provide a free source of clean water to use in lawns and gardens. Workshop participants will also learn the basics of rain barrel installation and maintenance and will be able to paint their barrel to better match the landscape of their home. Call 424-9485 for more information.
