Did you know that you or your business can adopt a garden?


In 2014 KWPB started the City's first-ever Adopt-a-Garden Program!  At the start of 2014 KWPB submitted a grant through Keep America Beautiful outlining this program.  Though our committee did not receive this grant, it did provide opportunity to outline this program in detail.  Not receiving this grant did not stop our momentum to making this program a reality.  We gathered with City officials and worked through the details to move forward with 3 spots in the downtown area (See pictures below). These groups did a fabulous job of planting and maintaining these gardens in 2014!  The plaques to acknowledge these groups for their efforts are being made and we hope to have them set in their gardens by spring 2015!!  In 2015 our group has visions to implement more gardens.  This program allows our groups visibility to the community while assisting in the beautification efforts of Woodland Park and lessening the burden for City crews maintaining gardens in the downtown area.  If you are interested you can access the program outlined in our TroyBilt Grant and/or download the Adopt-a-Garden Agreement in the KWPB Library Reports/Materials [above].

Boulders from CC&V Mine

Our THANKS to CC&V Mine for their donation of several boulders to place in the gardens with a plaque!  (Above)

Junior Achievement (below) did an excellent job of planting and maintaining several areas outside the south entrance to the Public Library (off of Midland Avenue).

Foxworth-Galbraith (below) was the first business to step up to this opportunity by adopting the highly visible garden at the intersection of Grace Avenue and HWY 24.  They did a superb job in giving this garden a mountain western vibe that is so inviting to our area visitors.
