Learn the essentials of rainwater harvesting, from design to installation!   This workshop starts with a visual presentation of design and installation  best practices, followed by a construction tools overview and rainwater
catchment product sampling. Participants can then put these guidelines to  practice with a guided installation of a 620 gallon tank and overflow rain  garden. The workshop is hosted by Merrritt College Landscape Horticulture
