Park Commission Gearing Up For Johnny Appleseed

Posted on 10 April 2012 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—The 2012 Johnny Appleseed Tree planting in Boone is less than a month away.  The Boone Park Commission received the update this week.  Johnny Appleseed has recently been awarded a grant from the Alliant Energy and Trees Forever.  Most of the planting this year will be on the Boone Campus of Des Moines Area Community College.  190 arborvitae will be planted by the new baseball field at DMACC.  Any other donations will be used for additional tree plantings to replace trees that did not survive.  Johnny Appleseed donations may be made out to the City of Boone with a notation of Appleseed and will be used only for the Johnny Appleseed program.
