2016 Community Backyards participant with her new compost bin.

The Community Backyards Rebate program is set to re-launch on April 1, 2017 but workshops are currently being scheduled for the year and  you can register to attend one of our current in-person workshops starting today! So far we have workshops scheduled for Westerville, Canal Winchester, Bexley, New Albany and many around Columbus. To easily register online, visit our Franklin Soil and Water Eventbrite page.

Community Backyards will once again offer $50 or $100 reimbursements to residents after participation in the program and purchase of an approved backyard conservation item. Participation is necessary to receive a rebate, and participants must live in an eligible tax district. So get ready for spring and visit Community Backyards for more information on how you can participate today!

As with last year, orders placed through our Conservation Spring Tree and Plant sale will be eligible for reimbursement once you participate in the program. So make sure to order your trees before April 10, 2017. You can easily order your plants online through our shopping cart or you can view our January newsletter for an order form to mail in and to find more information on the different species we are offering this year.
