Brookhaven hosts rain barrel workshop

Proceeds benefit Peachtree Creek Greenway initiative

Brookhaven, GA, Aug. 15, 2017 – Brookhaven is hosting a rain barrel workshop for City residents. The workshop is set for Thursday, Sept. 14, 2017, from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Briarwood Recreation Center located at 2235 Briarwood Way in Brookhaven.

The collection of rainwater in rain barrels is an effective way for residents to conserve water and reduce water bills. During the workshop, residents will learn about rain barrel maintenance, water conservation landscaping, and runoff reduction.

The rain barrel workshop is open to the first 25 Brookhaven residents who enroll, and there is a limit of one rain barrel per household. This is a “hands-on” workshop in which residents will make their own rain barrels with assistance.  

The barrels are recycled 55-gallon syrup drums donated by Coca Cola.  Other supplies, instructions and demonstrations are provided by Keep DeKalb Beautiful.  The cost of the workshop is $25, with all proceeds benefiting the Peachtree Creek Greenway (PCG).  The deadline to register is Thursday, Sept. 7, 2017. To register, call 404-298-4080.


About PCG:  Phase I of the PCG runs from North Druid Hills Road to Briarwood Road. This 1.25 mile stretch is the central link in Brookhaven's 2.9 miles of the Peachtree Creek Greenway Trail.
