3rd Annual Rainwater Revival

3rd Annual Rainwater Revival

October 27, 2012  •  Boerne Convention & Community Center  •  10am to 4pm

From the seven hills of ancient Rome to today’s Texas Hill Country, rainwater collection has spanned the globe and the ages. To celebrate this timeless conservation practice, rainwater collection professionals and enthusiasts converge in Boerne, Texas on Saturday, October 27, 2012 for the 3rd annual Rainwater Revival! Open to the public and free to attend, thanks to our wonderful sponsors!

The festive day will be filled with informative and entertaining presentations by professionals and users of rainwater, water conservation-related business vendor booths, rainwater system displays, and plenty of experts to provide guidance and services; as well as food booths, shopping, live music, plus much more!

Rainwater Revival supports the mission to spread the good word about rainwater harvesting and water conservation, the importance of which grows with our ever increasing population.

In addition to a roster of speakers providing an experienced cross-section of rainwater collection knowledge, the Rainwater Revival will feature a collection of 55-gallon recycled rain barrels transformed into works of art by Hill Country artists. The barrels will be displayed around Kendall County during the weeks leading up to the Rainwater Revival and then auctioned off at the event.
