Each month you can find different special events like this one, even if it is not in St. Petersburg, Florida on Wabamm. This allows you to help you family and friends go and do things that are totally cool and fun with the community you live in.
Do you know that you could collect 300 gallons of water from 1,000 square feet of roof during a 1/2â rain? Do you want to collect and use rainwater but are not sure how?
Become a Rainwater Guardian by joining your neighbors to learn about:
- reducing your use of drinking water outside
- how rainwater harvesting helps protect local waterways and the environment
- rain barrel setup, use and maintenance
- creating shallow rain gardens that are attractive and functional
FREE RAIN BARRELS for St. Petersburg utility customers - you MUST register and attend the class to receive a rain barrel. Limited to one per property per year.
Workshop is FREE. Pre-Registration is Required as Workshop Seating is Limited! Workshop attendance by an adult resident is required to receive a rain barrel - no exceptions. Supply is limited.
**Upon City Council adoption, in October 2019 rebates will be available to St. Pete stormwater customers when they install rainwater catchment devices such as rain barrels, totes, or rain gardens. In October, find out more at stpete.org/WaterPrograms**
Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early to allow ample time to find parking and seating before the program begins.
For more information, please call 727-892-5688.
If you have liked the special events you have been to so far, tell your friends about how you found them on Wabamm.
