Terry Doloughty went on a little expedition today to meet up with some volunteers in Hazelwood. He helped to create two rain barrels for the Permaculture Food Forest, as well as offering pointers for making them on your own. This ended up being a great collaboration. He ended up working with Pittsburgh Garden Experiment, Hazelwood Initiative, SCA students, and the Permaculture Food Forest. The event was hosted by the Hazelwood Initiative.
“We taught young residents about rain barrels, and demonstrated different techniques used in their construction. The SCA provided the barrels, I provided the expertise, tools and some improvisation with found materials.” said Mr. Doloughty.
