Rainwater Revival Sets up in Boerne
Wednesday, October 30, 2013 • Posted November 1, 2013

Austin, TX – 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, November 2, the Rainwater Revival returns to the Boerne Civic Center where rain harvesting experts and practitioners will speak throughout the day in tandem 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.

The free, daylong event is produced by the Hill Country Alliance 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 are invited to come learn about the ease and many benefits of rainwater collection and how to reduce our impact on the environment, save money on water bills, and experience the joys and deliciousness of captured rainwater.

For a complete schedule of speakers, photos of the one-of-a-kind art barrels, a list of vendors and exhibitors, and more information on rainwater harvesting, visit
