Did you know that the City of San Diego has a rain barrel rebate  
program?  I like to call it Rainwater Tank Rebate program!  At $1/ 
gallon up to $400, you can actually get a 500 gallon tank for FREE,  
since they cost about $400!  What if you also knew how to install that  
tank?  Then for $100-$200 in additional parts you can have a  
significant rainwater catchment system.

Furthermore did you know that 1000 square feet of roof will shed 600  
gallons in only one inch of rain?  It rains 10 inches in San Diego on  
average.  So you can imagine this size tank will fill up quickly.

What can you do with this water?  You can water your plants (hopefully  
your veggies and herbs) throughout the winter minimizing and maybe  
eliminating your need for additional city water.  Then you will have  
more room in your tank for your next 500 gallons.  Pretty soon, your  
500 gallon tank becomes a 1000 gallon tank or a 1500 gallon tank as it  
is used up and refilled throughout the rainy season!

Now that you know all this great information, come learn more!  And  
get hands-on experience learning how to install a tank this weekend!   
We will be installing a 1000 gallon tank from bare soil and unaltered  
downspout to finished product.

When: Saturday, April 13th 9:30-12:30am
