As a lawncare professional working in the City of Columbus, your help is needed!

Franklin Soil and Water Conservation District and the City of Columbus are partnering with interested landscaping and lawncare companies to inform residents of actions they can take to improve water quality.

The messages and marketing materials we are developing for residents recognize that healthy turf can help with water quality, as do related lawncare practices: handling yard waste correctly; keeping sidewalks and driveways free of chemicals and grass clippings; and keeping storm drains (that are directly connected to our streams and rivers) free of pollutants. Your company will also be recognized for your support and participation in providing targeted messaging to improve water quality in central Ohio.

We invite you to speak with us on November 12th at 11:00 a.m. , and to stay for a complimentary lunch provided by City Barbeque to thank you for your time.

Participants are invited to:

· Share their experiences with promoting good water quality and lawncare practices with clients and general public

· Provide feedback on communication strategies, outreach materials currently in development, and on the type of recognition that would be valuable to you (for example, a program logo on company vehicles, or you company recognition in City of Columbus’ outreach materials)

· Receive next steps about future participation, including how your company can receive and use free materials for current and future customers

· Learn about educational materials and workshops available through Franklin Soil and Water that can enhance the quality of service you provide to customers

The format will be an informal discussion moderated by District board member Chris Wible, followed by lunch. Your participation is very much appreciated! To reserve your spot, or if you have questions, please call 614-486-9613 or email Sara at sernst@franklinswcd.org.
