MARCH 2024 VBMG Rain Barrel Workshop

Join the Virginia Beach Master Gardener Water Stewards to construct a 55-gallon sealed rain barrel and learn why keeping water on your property is important for the health of our local waterways.

Guests are welcome at our workshops, but only one name is needed for registration. You may register for up to two barrels. Additional barrels will also be available for purchase at the workshop. Registration will close at midnight on the Thursday prior to the workshop.
