Rain barrel workshops

Santa Rosa County and UF/IFAS Extension will host a rain barrel workshops Wed., Jan. 30 from 5:30 until 7 p.m. and Wed., Feb. 27 from 10 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. at the UF/IFAS Santa Rosa County Extension office, 6263 Dogwood Dr. in Milton. The Santa Rosa County Stormwater Solutions Program will provide students with the parts and barrels to build a rain barrel at no cost, thanks to funding from the Florida Beverage Association.

Rain barrels can be any large containers placed under downspouts to catch stormwater

runoff from the roof. Screens between the barrel opening and the downspout keep out

debris and mosquitoes. Collected water can then be used for outdoor watering needs.
There is no cost to register for this workshop. For more information, contact Chris Verlinde at (850) 623-3868 or christinav@santarosa.fl.gov or Shelley Alexander at (850) 981-2018 or shellya@santarosa.fl.gov.
