Paint a Rain Barrel

Green Iowa AmeriCorps (GIA) has rain barrels that need to be beautified! 

Work as a team or individually to paint rain barrels on Saturday, April 6 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. GIA will provide the paint and brushes. Participants should bring a reusable water bottle and creativity. Artwork cannot be offensive.

There are only 40 barrels, so participants must RSVP in order to paint a rain barrel. Please RSVP by emailing GIA will send all groups/individuals who would like to paint a barrel a form to fill out.

Participants that paint a barrel will have the first opportunity to buy their barrel for $24. Purchase of the unclaimed rain barrels will be open to the public after the event. 

Please contact GIA with questions at or call 319-339-5399.

This event is hosted by Green Iowa AmeriCorps in collaboration with Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department.
