PREBLE COUNTY — Would you like to beautify your yard, increase your property value, help wildlife, reduce the lawn area you need to mow, grow your own food, or help air quality by planting trees? If so, the Preble Soil and Water Conservation District’s Annual Plant Sale is underway, and we have some great plant options available at reasonable prices.
