Get a Free Rain Barrel




The Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) believes that everyone can make a difference in transforming Philadelphia into a greener city with clean water. They will host a Rain Check workshop facilitated by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., December 6, at the Ramonita G. de Rodriguez Library. There will be time for Q&A.

Participants will learn how they can get a free rain barrel, with reduced pricing for downspout planters. Rain gardens, depaving and permeable pavers will also be offered. The PWD Rain Check program gives Philadelphia residents an opportunity to reduce pollution that would otherwise end up in our creeks and rivers.

Location: 600 W. Girard Ave., Philadelphia. For more information and to register, call 215-988-1698 or visit PhillyWatersheds.org/raincheck.
