Rainwater is the best water for your lawn, landscape or vegetable garden: divert it, save it, use it! Your Keep The Colony Beautiful Board (KTCB) has partnered with Texas A&M Agrilife Water University to provide residents of The Colony with the opportunity to take a FREE virtual "DIY Rain Barrel Class" at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 8. Learn the basics and benefits of rainwater harvesting and reduce the effect your stormwater has on the environment. Participants will learn how to collect and utilize rainwater at home and have the opportunity to purchase their own 55-gallon rain barrel. Rain barrels are recycled food-grade containers and are roughly 24" wide by 36" tall. Interested participants must register online. Those wishing to pay a $50 fee for the class may collect a fully assembled rain barrel from KTCB volunteers from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 12, in the parking lot of the City Hall Annex, 6804 Main St. For more information, send email to Kathleen Rainey.
