Where Does Your Water Come From? Where Does It Go?
GCC Nursery, 431 Carroll St, Brooklyn, NY 11215
Sun, November 13, 11:00am - 12:30pm 

RSVP for a workshop here. 

Learn what you can do to help prevent Combined Sewer Overflows in New York City. Whenever it rains, raw sewage is dumped untreated into New York City water-bodies like the Gowanus Canal. In this hands on workshop, learn about this problem and come away with ideas about what you can do from adopting a bioswale, to building your own rainwater harvesting system. More info here.

Pick up a FREE DEP Rain Barrel for your school, home, or business!*
*EDIT: We are currently out of stock. Sign up for the rain barrel waiting list here. We will email you as soon as a new shipment arrives.
