Native Garden Grants
Keep Texas Beautiful (KTB) in partnership with AEP Texas is excited to announce the 2017 Keep Texas Beautiful Native Garden Grants (Native Garden Grants) winners. The Native Garden Grants will provide winning affiliate communities with $800.00 and support and materials needed to create and maintain a native plant demonstration garden. These gardens will serve as a model to educate and engage people to grow native species in their own gardens. This KTB grant aligned with National Planting Day,
September 9 to create awareness in not only the winning communities involved, but throughout Texas.
Congratulations to this year's 2017 Native Garden Grant winners!
