There will be a free workshop on the topic of rain barrels hosted by the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed Partnership, Inc. The workshop will be held at the Glenside Free Library on Thursday, March 3rd from 5:30pm-7:30pm.
The workshop is a chance to learn about stream pollution and ways residents can make an impact. Rain Barrels are a stream protection tool and TTF will cover how they work, why they are important, their components, location on your property and if they are suitable for your home and needs.
You do not have to purchase a rain barrel to attend the meeting, nor is it required to attend the meeting to purchase a barrel. For those who order, TTF will have the barrels shipped to a central location close to Glenside within two weeks for pick up. Each barrel costs $75.
