At Downing Park Urban Farm we are not afraid to get wet if that is what it takes to get ahead of the curve! Water is a valuable resource and we are actively promoting water conservation. So how do you water your garden when there is a water restriction? With harvested rainwater!!

Come join our farm manager Marcel as he introduces the basics of rainwater collection and storage as well as how to implement a rainwater harvesting solution for irrigation in the urban context. Philip Prinzivalli of Newburgh's Conservation Advisory Council will co-lead the workshop on how to build your own affordable rainwater harvesting system. 

We look forward to having you there—
