If April showers bring May flowers, then we all better buy boats! We’ve had enough rain in Franklin this winter to set a record. Wait… we did set a record!

Mother Nature is fascinating, amazing and unpredictable. This month at Franklin Lifestyle, we bring you our Eco issue in honor of Earth Day on April 22. We compiled an array of eco-conscious people and places making a difference right here in Franklin—food trucks, farm-to-table restaurants and donations all presented to you with an eco-friendly twist. 

Whether or not you have a green thumb, we hope the stories in these pages invoke feelings of gratitude for the wonderful world we live in—and the wonderful people in our community who strive to sustain it.

Happy spring!
