Outdoor Learning Center - Keep Alvin Beautiful
Keep Alvin Beautiful restored a large garden and greenhouse (the Outdoor Learning Center), including an aquaponics area developed by a local teacher, near two schools.  In order to get students more involved in the project, we partnered with the local AgriLife Extension to hold student classes (Learn, Grow, Eat and Go for third graders and Egg to Chick for fifth graders) in the greenhouse.

The Plant SMART in Frisco website now serves as an educational companion to the Shawnee Trail Demonstration Garden in Frisco, which is full of beautiful, established plants that are native or well-adapted to our North Texas area.

Pocket Plaza - Keep Henderson Beautiful
The Pocket Park Plaza provides a green area downtown. The Plaza was developed in a section of South Calhoun Street that was closed to accommodate the Plaza. The beds are planted with evergreens and seasonal colors.
