Large Turnout for Spring Rain Barrel Workshops

In May and June, Bluegrass Greensource hosted seven rain barrel workshops in Bourbon, Clark, Scott, and Woodford Counties, sponsored by Kentucky American Water.  Representatives from Bluegrass Greensource taught workshop participants about water conservation, its importance, and the purpose of rain barrels, as well as demonstrated for participants how to make a rain barrel. After the demonstration, each participant put together his or her own rain barrel to take home.


Thanks to generous support from Kentucky American Water, local citizens can participate in a workshop for just $10 per person. Over 140 people participated in the spring workshops.

If you are interested in learning to make your own rain barrel, Bluegrass Greensource will be hosting more rain barrel workshops this fall in Bourbon, Owen, and Scott Counties with the support of Kentucky American Water.  The dates of these workshops will be announced in early August. If you are interested in attending, please visit to get the registration information, or join our mailing list to be among the first to receive the schedule!
