Choose from a variety of conifers (packed in bundles of 10) and hardwoods (packed in bundles of 5). These bare root seedlings are shipped without soil making them light weight and easy to carry. All seedlings are state and federally inspected. Reasonable substitutions may be necessary based on availability from the nursery.

Looking for something to do with the little ones?
The days are getting longer again. While it's pretty cold at the moment, perhaps there will be a few nice winter days that will be perfect for you to bring the kids to the Community Park. They can walk the Born Learning Trail, play hopscotch or "check out" a book at the Berkshire Book Nook. Let them blow off some steam and have fun outdoors.
SENIOR APPLIANCE PICKUP SERVICE NOW AVAILABLE
DELAWARE, Oh. – The Senior Appliance Pickup service, funded by SourcePoint, is again available to adults 55 and older looking to rid themselves of any electronics and appliances. Collection will occur through the end of May and start again in September or until funding is depleted.
P.S. Two new trash receptacles were recently added on the main path to help keep your garden clean and free of litter.
This year, residents are limited to one screen per household (TV or other type of monitor). Multiples of other electronics and appliances are accepted.
The pickup service was developed to prevent injuries that could be sustained from lifting or falling while trying to move appliances or computer components. The Health District contracts with a moving company to pick up large, bulky or heavy items from a resident’s home and deliver them to Friction Metals. This service also allows for many of the materials to be recycled rather than go directly to a landfill.
In 2017, 5,709 pounds of electronics and 6,500 pounds of appliances were picked up with this program.
For more information, contact Keep Delaware County Beautiful coordinator Jenifer Way-Young at 740-203-2076.
