Virtual Rainwater Guardian Workshop

Did you know that you can collect 300 gallons of water from 1,000 square feet of roof during a 1/2” rain? You're invited to attend a Rainwater Guardian Workshop to learn about:

·        Reducing your use of potable (drinking) water for lawn and garden irrigation

·        How rainwater harvesting helps protect local waterways and the environment

·        Rain barrel setup, use and maintenance

·        Creating shallow rain gardens that are attractive and functional


Workshops are free and pre-registration is required for attendance. Workshops may be canceled at any time due to low registration or other circumstances.

Tuesday, Dec. 8 at 6-7:30 p.m.

St. Petersburg utility customers may receive a rain barrel upon completion of a Rainwater Guardian Workshop. Rain barrels will be available at a future date once physical distancing and other public health standards can be assured.


Starting October 2020, upon City Council fiscal year 2021 budget approval, rebates will be available to single-family residential utility customers when they install rainwater catchment devices such as rain barrels, rain totes or rain gardens. Check for updates.
