AUSTIN – The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and Travis County Master Gardeners will present a Rainwater Collection program from 10 a.m. to noon on April 14 in Austin.
The program will be at the AgriLife Extension office, 1600-B Smith Road.
“Attendees will see how they can use a home rainwater collection system to help their landscape, trees and lawn survive Central Texas’ drought conditions,” said Daphne Richards, AgriLife Extension agent for horticulture, Travis County.
“Master Gardener Ed Parken will discuss ways to collect rain, how to use it and ways to add art to a tank.”
Richards said program instruction also will include a tutorial on PVC pipe construction as well as a tour of the rainwater collection system at the AgriLife Extension office demonstration garden.
The cost is $10 per person by April 4 and $15 thereafter. No cash will be accepted; payment can be made by check or credit card only.
