Harvesting rain water in the Okanagan

Zoe Kirk, RDOS water conservation ambassador, is providing free workshops on rainwater harvesting using rain barrels.

When done correctly, according to Kirk, the barrels are a cheap and effective way to collect water, save money and divert water away from foundations.

Kirk will lead participants through the simple steps of thinking where to place bins, how to divert water from eavestroughs and how to winterize. The workshop will help homeowners understand what set up would work best for their specific home.

The barrels will not be sold as part of this pre-sale, but Kirk will provide information on what to look for if buying or building a rain harvesting system.

The next Penticton Harvesting the Heavens with Rain Barrels workshop will be at 1 p.m., Sunday, March 16 at the RONA Penticton.

Information on workshops in other areas is available on the RDOS website.
