All summer Johnson County Soil and Water Conservation District and Franklin residents have been creating compost. Now, it’s time to put it to use! Join us at Johnson County Park on August 26th from 10:00am to 12:00pm. First, we will discuss how to start your own compost pile and the process behind the decomposition. After our discussion, we will be planting fruit and nut trees at Johnson County Park with the compost that Franklin residents helped create!
