KDB celebrated its 26th Annual Denton Redbud Festival on April 13, 2019. It may have been storming outside, but that didn’t phase us! It was a great day with thousands of attendees. Thank you to all who came out! Check out photos from the festival from our official event photographers, Gabriel Lee and Trejon D’Angelo.
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 $4,740 in grant funding to ten groups. These grants funded school projects to build raised bed gardens, revitalize landscaping, plant trees, sustain existing gardens, and build outdoor learning areas. 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 a healing garden and landscaping to enhance a new office space. 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!
