Keep Blount Beautiful seeks grants  to provide opportunities to bring educational beautification projects to area schools. 

WHO: Schools located in Blount County in need of beautification to their landscape  as well as an opportunity to bring more access to fresh foods to their students. 

WHAT: Keep Blount Beautiful will facilitate and provide the plants, equipment, and additional volunteers to complete the planting. Schools are required to provide the maintenance for the plants after the planting is complete. Teachers, staff, students, and families are encouraged to participate in the planting.

PURPOSE: The goal of this campaign is to instill in our young citizens a sense of ownership over their town. The plantings will also provide educational opportunities for teachers.
