Spring rain barrel workshops offered

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Chesterfield County Environmental Engineering, in cooperation with the James River Soil and Water Conservation District and the Chesterfield County office of Virginia Cooperative Extension, will hold two workshops in May to teach people how to build rain barrels.

The workshops will be held Saturday, May 4, at 10 a.m., and Thursday, May 16, at 6:30, at the Chesterfield County Fairgrounds. Each will last about three hours. Participants in each workshop will learn about water conservation and be able to take home the rain barrels they build.

The workshops fill up fast, so those wanting to participate should pick the date that works best for them and register early. For more information, contact Lorne Field at 804-748-1920.
