2018-19 KDB Grant Awards

Environmental Education & Neighborhood Beautification Grants

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!
