Rainwater Revival pitches tents
Rainwater harvesting is part of the new water culture in Texas - especially in the Texas Hill Country where water is scarce and precious.
On Saturday, Nov. 2, the Rainwater Revival returns to the Boerne Civic Center where rain harvesting experts and practitioners will speak throughout the day, along with a variety of exhibitor and vendor tents, a live auction of artful rain barrels, the Raindrop Stop for kids, food trailers, music and fun for the whole family.
Produced by the Hill Country Alliance, this free, daylong event is designed for the "edu-tainment" of the rainwater harvesting curious, novices, skeptics and seasoned practitioners. Homeowners, businesses, urban and rural dwellers, homebuilders, developers, teachers and students will learn about the ease and benefits of rainwater collection. Information will also show how to reduce an impact on the environment, save money on water bills and experience the joys and deliciousness of captured rainwater.
