South Burlington, VT. Rain Barrel Workshop




South Burlington Rain Barrel Workshop. June 7, 2015. The Chittenden County Stream Team and South Burlington Natural Resources Committee offered a hands on workshop for residents to build and take home a rain barrel. The workshop was held at City Hall in South Burlington! Looks like a good time!

I think this is called the barrel role. 


Power was disconnected from drill before removing the cut out. 












One of the final tasks required a person to go into the barrel to tighten a bolt.








Caring, contribution and meeting each other-and in this case, helping each other, build community!  ~Bernie
