Rain Check is a Philadelphia Water program that helps residents manage stormwater and beautify their homes.


More Reasons to Sign up for a Rain Check Workshop Right Now

Attending a workshop during the fall or winter is the best way to ensure you will have a green tool for your home once the weather warms up in spring.

To encourage participation, we are offering two special incentives for the fall and winter workshops.

Refer a Friend for Flower Show Tickets: Past Rain Check participants who get Philadelphia residents to come to a Rain Check workshop before February 14, 2018 will have a chance to win two tickets to the 2018 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show. Just spread the word about Rain Check and tell people to give your name when they RSVP for their workshop (participant must attend the workshop). The 2018 show's theme is "Wonders of Water," so we know Rain Check supporters will want to see this amazing display of gardens that highlight our planet's most important resource!

Enter a Monthly Raffle for an Artistic Rain Barrel: Each month this fall and winter (November through February), Rain Check will give a specially wrapped rain barrel to one randomly selected participant. All residents have to do is attend a Rain Check workshop. Winners can choose from three designs created by Philadelphia student artists and the Mural Arts Program.

About Rain Check

Rain Check is a Philadelphia Water program that helps residents manage stormwater at their homes. Participants can get a free rain barrel and/or get a downspout planter, rain garden or porous paving installed at a reduced price. Rain Check supports Philadelphia’s Green City, Clean Waters program which is working in neighborhoods across the City, adding green features to keep excess stormwater out of sewers.

The program is funded by Philadelphia Water and managed by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) in partnership with the Sustainable Business Network (SBN).
