About this Event

Sorry, this event is postponed until Saturday 18 May.

It falls! It’s free! Catch it while you can!
There’s never a better time than the present to learn how to collect rainwater.

  • Join rainwater harvesting guru and multi-talented inventor Laurie Dee, who will take you through how to build your own rain barrel collection system.
  • Find out how to calculate how much rainwater your roof could capture, all about water dynamics, council regulations for larger systems, and other frequently asked questions.
  • After a quick break, we’ll have a practical session where you’ll get your barrel drilled* and ready to set up at your place.

Join the Rain Harvesting Club to start saving water and reducing your water bills!

* Nb. EcoMatters store sells rain barrels and connection kits. 
Please let us know if you are interested in getting a system on the day.

Workshop attendees receive a $10 voucher when purchasing a rain harvesting kit*
(*one or more barrels with connection kit). 

Email EcoMatters Store Manager: Jackie Muller at [email protected]
