To celebrate Earth Week, Grumbles House is hosting a free talk Tuesday, April 19 on rain barrels. Join us at 10:30 a.m. to hear Gabriel Vicari, of the Water Resources department of UF/IFAS Extension, Marion County talk about why it’s important to conserve rainwater, how to easily build a barrel to harvest in, and all the scoop. The talk will highlight the 2 different example barrels, the tools used to build them, and some locations to find “upcycled” barrels. She may build one for purchase if someone is interested. The Marion County Water Resource liaison may alos attend & speak. She has a lot of information to share about septic pumping grants and cost-share info. The talk & demo will begin at 10:30 followed by a Q&A period.
We are combining “Water Wednesday” and “Transportation Tuesday” from the Before It’s Too Late 7 Day Challenge (https://www.beforeitstoolate.
