ENGAGING ALL MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY IN HELPING TO KEEP COVINGTON CLEAN AND GREEN!
With support from Covington Partners and Skool Aid, Keep Covington Beautiful is proud to facilitate an after-school garden club at John G. Carlisle and Glenn O. Swing Elementary Schools where students can learn about gardening, recycling, and the environment.
In 2019, 165 2nd-5th grade students participated in classes covering topics such as how to start seeds to grow vegetables and flowers, the importance of pollinators, waste reduction, litter prevention, recycling, composting, making bird feeders, making fresh salads from the garden, and more!
Our Environmental Studies clubs teach students what it means to garden, live green, take care of their environment, and take pride in their neighborhood and city.
