In the spirit of fostering community engagement and environmental stewardship, the Clear Fork FFA Alumni, in collaboration with the Richland Soil and Water Conservation District (Richland SWCD), has announced its annual tree seedling sale. This event is a hallmark of spring in north central Ohio, offering a unique opportunity for residents to contribute to local reforestation efforts and beautify their properties.

A Green Initiative

Scheduled for Friday, March 22, the sale kicks off at 8:00 AM and runs through 12:00 PM, promising an array of tree seedlings suitable for a variety of landscapes and climates. This year’s sale introduces an exciting offer: bundles of seven identical seedlings available for just $10.00, making it easier and more affordable for community members to participate in this green initiative. More details about the sale, including species descriptions and an order form, can be found at Clear Fork’s official site.

Where to Find Your Future Trees

Prospective buyers can head to two locations to find their perfect seedlings. The Richland County Fairgrounds Nature Park will host the sale from 9:00 AM until 6:00 PM, or until supplies last. Alternatively, Clear Fork High School offers an earlier shopping opportunity, starting at 8:00 AM and concluding at noon, or once all seedlings are sold. Should there be any leftover seedlings at Clear Fork High School, they will be transferred to the Richland County Fairgrounds to ensure everyone has a chance to participate.

How to Purchase

It’s important to note that all sales are final, emphasizing the commitment of buyers to their new green charges. For comprehensive details on placing bulk orders or purchasing remaining seedlings, interested parties are encouraged to reach out via the contact information provided.

A Commitment to Growth

This sale is not just about planting trees; it’s a testament to the community’s dedication to environmental conservation and sustainability. By participating, residents are directly contributing to the beautification of their surroundings and the health of the planet. The initiative also serves as a hands-on educational opportunity for students of Clear Fork High School, involving them in conservation efforts and teaching them the importance of environmental stewardship.
