Are you ready for the El Niño rains? Want to install a rain barrel or rip out your lawn, but not sure where to begin? Join TreePeople to learn how simple “do-it-yourself” projects can maximize your ability to capture rain for reuse! Explore how & why rainwater harvesting is a valuable asset to any landscape. Walk away with step by step instructions on how to perform a site analysis, create a design, choose plant species and install a rain garden, rain barrel or both! Hollywood Orchard is partnering with TreePeople and Rain Barrels International to host rain barrel sales and distribution.

Join us at the BESANT LODGE – 2560 N. Beachwood Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90068
