Join Master Gardener Volunteer Evie Pankok to learn the who, what, why, when, where, and how of rain barrels. Rain barrels are a great way to reduce stormwater runoff and to save water for a dry spell.

Rain barrels capture water and hold it for later use such as on lawns, gardens, or indoor plants. Collecting roof runoff in rain barrels reduces the amount of water that flows from your property. It’s a great way to conserve water, and it’s free water for use in your landscape.

Evie will provide guidance on how to build your own rain barrel with some basic supplies and a few simple steps.

Evie Pankok is a master gardener volunteer in Duval County whose specialty is environmentally friendly landscapes. She recently retired from the Duval County Extension Office where she served many years as a horticulture agent and then as a Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ program assistant.

This program will be offered in-person at the Garden Club and simultaneously on Zoom.

The program is free and open to the public.
