Keep Denton Beautiful Helps Low-Income Denton Residents

Keep Denton Beautiful (KDB) will host the third cycle of the KDB Garden Giveaway on Saturday, September 7, 2013 at the Denia Recreation Center in Denton. Individuals and families were selected on the basis of need to receive a free “garden kit”. The kit will include a self-watering container; soil; 6 vegetable plants; a watering can; a recipe book; and planting instructions. Participants will be educated about the environmental, health and socioeconomic benefits of gardening and provided with the resources to be knowledgeable and successful.

During last year’s giveaway, KDB supplied 100 garden kits and the new gardeners planted kale, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, green beans, collard greens and basil. In 2013, 75 recipients will receive vegetable container gardens.

This program is supported by sponsors: Sustainable Denton, Clear Creek Natural Heritage Center, The Denton Record-Chronicle, the City of Denton Solid Waste Department, the City of Denton Parks & Recreation Department, and Sleepin’ Dogs Website Designs.
