2024 BHR Events

September 7, 2024
Assembling a Rainwater Collection System for the Garden

Instructor Helen Allen will teach a one-day workshop on the basics of assembling a rainwater collection system for watering your garden. Helen designed and built her home’s rainwater collection system which is serving her family well.

Participants will actively engage in hooking up two 1200 gallon water tanks to the BHR barn guttering system at the barn. Helen will lead us in assembling this system as a model for what you can do at your home. By the end of the day, BHR should have a functional means of alternative water collection that demonstrates a vital home system needed for self-sufficient living. Each participant will be given a handout on materials needed and useful online and published resources about rainwater collection.


Cost: $40. Lunch provided.

Time: 11:00am – 4:00pm Eastern

Location: The Blue Heron Ranch,  577 Hawkins Ranch Road, Menlo, Georgia
