  • Rain Barrel Workshop

    ​7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

    Purchase a professional, locally made, rain barrel from Camels Hump Rain Barrels.  Learn how to hook up and care for your rain barrel, retaining runoff and reusing the water in your garden!

    Rain barrels collect water that would normally flow directly off the roof through gutter down spouts and become storm water runoff. Retaining this runoff for garden use conserves water for plants during dry periods, saves the gardener time spent watering garden plants and provides a consistent supply of free soft (no chlorine, lime or calcium) water for outdoor use.

     

  • Evans-Mumbower Mill Open House & Ice Cream Social

    1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

    Take a break from the heat and join us for a cool treat and a tour of the water-powered gristmill.
