Want to adopt* your own spot?
If your group has a Spot, or wants to have a Spot, KCB can send a guest speaker to your meeting so everyone is on the same page, which helps when there is turnover in positions..
*Adopt-a-Spot: This year-round program has been in operation for 25 years. Groups help out all over town –
– KCB assigns locations (with your input)
– you schedule your monthly cleanups (or weekly, if needed)
– KCB provides bags and gloves.
STUDENTS IN HORTICULTURE ... and similar majors
Adopt the KCB garden for the year (or longer)! The garden is on the north side of Grand Avenue, where Piles Fork Creek comes under the bridge. Between Papa John's and the Pinch Penny parking lot. Greenways Trail goes along side.
Contact Sarah at 525-5525 for more info.

Help with KCB's Fall Tree Sale -- scheduled for Saturday October 3rd. Unload the truck on Friday, sort and organize the trees for sale. On Saturday, advise customers on purchase of a tree.
