Rain Barrel Workshop
As the first “green lodging” in Lynchburg, Virginia, The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast makes taking care of our earth a priority. We recycle rain run-off from our roofs into a 2000-gallon buried sistern the the backyard and into rain barrels located around the house. This water is used to water our organic vegetable, fruit, herb and lavender garden throughout the summer months.
The Lynchburg Community Market, one of the oldest continuously operating community markets in the country, is offering a Rain Barrel Workshop on Saturday August 13, 2011 between 1-3pm. This workshop will teach you how to save your rain water, make and operate your own rain barrel and the importance of rain gardens.
The cost of this workshop is $65.00 and includes: the lecture, the barrel with hardware and instruction. Advance registration is required, call 434.846.1388 and we will make the arrangements.
Come stay with us during this workshop weekend and we will credit you $65.00 toward your room rate plus show you how we have incorporated saving rain water into our daily lives.
