Since 2007, KDB has given out grants for environmental education and neighborhood beautification projects to Denton area schools and community groups. This year, KDB awarded a total of $4,957 in grant funding to seven groups. These grants funded school projects to build rain gardens and continued construction of a greenhouse. Through the projects, students are not only able to learn about the environment, but how to become better stewards of the environment. The neighborhood beautification projects funded this year include the construction of pollinator gardens, entryway revitalization, native plant landscaping, and a bike rack and art garden both at one local business. The grants seek to beautify spaces in Denton while nurturing a sense of community pride, and we think this year’s projects did just that!
These grants were generously underwritten by the following sponsors:
