“In 2007, the city suffered from the ravages of a devastating flood...In the aftermath, Keep Grapevine Beautiful stepped up...This was the most cohesive, incredible grassroots project ever accomplished and one that will make our citizens proud to live in Grapevine and be part of this unique community.”

Mayor of Grapevine
We believe environmental stewardship happens through education. Whether its teaching children how to plant a garden, homeowners to conserve water, or a business to recycle, education is the means to an environmentally-friendly end. As a result, Keep Grapevine Beautiful works with local schools, businesses, organizations, and citizens year-round through a variety of public education programs and events.
One of the best ways we educate people is in person. This is why you will see the KGVB education booth setup at all of our events, as well as other community functions. By answering questions, distributing informational literature, and playing "spin the wheel," we are able to educate with both adults and children.
Keep Grapevine Beautiful has granted thousands of dollars to district schools to implement environmental programs. The eco-system of pond life was improved at a high school, an outdoor classroom was built at a middle school, and elementary schools engaged in composting and the refurbishment of school flower beds. Furthermore, this group partners with the Grapevine-Colleyville ISD Green Team in planning ways in which they can preserve and protect the natural environment and the school campuses.
Keep Grapevine Beautiful hosts many events throughout the year to educate the public on the importance of and methods used in preserving natural resources:
