Community Backyards
Conservation Program

Welcome! Franklin Soil and Water, together with our partners, continues to promote stormwater education with a focus on rainwater harvesting and infiltration. Keeping rain where it falls and using it as a resource keeps our watersheds healthy and safe.

Community Backyards participants learn about the benefits of rain gardens, rain barrels, composting, native plants, and good lawn care practices.

One $50 rebate is available to eligible households once they purchase an approved rain barrel, compost bin, or native plants and trees.  

We are now offering a $100 rebate on native tree purchases to eligible residents.

Not all participants will qualify for each rebate and some restrictions will apply. Rebates are limited to one reimbursement per address per year. Eligible rebates are based on your tax district. *
Your tax district is not the same as your postal address. 

To find out if you qualify, please call (614) 486-9613 or continue below to find out more information!
