Franklin Soil and Water Conservation District Spring Tree and Plant Sale

Franklin Soil and Water Conservation District is having their Spring Tree and Plant Sale. Here are some resources to beautify our community!

Each year, our conservation team puts together our Spring Tree and Plant Sale. We offer different species of native plants (bare-root woody plants and trees); plug and container perennials (prairie grasses and flowering plants); seed mix (pollinator and native Ohio prairie mixes); and rotate in edible (berries, apples, mushroom kits) and live stakes (fast growing riparian species for streambank stabilization). We serve about 400 central Ohio residents and several non-profits every year by selling or donating plants. Our annual Spring Tree & Plant Sale is a fundraiser that benefits our Conservation Fund.

The 2019 Spring Tree and Plant Sale is now open! Visit the Online Shop now and place your order! Details and a mail-in order form can also be found in the 2019 Spring Frankly Speaking Newsletter.

View our new 2019 Spring Tree and Plant Sale Catalog (coming soon!) with plant descriptions and details.

ACA (Affordable Health Care Act) Enrollment until Dec 15

If you need health insurance, please know that the ACA (Affordable Health Care Act) Enrollment period is now open until Dec 15, 2018.

This is for full-fledged health insurance. Beware of the “Association Plans” recently being touted by some, as they have limited coverage, and may not cover you if you really get sick. ACA plans contain the full legally required benefits, and may be surprisingly affordable with the subsidies available to you.
