After being awarded an Earth Day mini-grant in 2011,
Kirby-Smith Middle School's Green Team decided to expand their conservation efforts on campus. The Green Team used the grant funds to install xeriscape landscaping, which reduces the need for supplemental water from irrigation.
The team took an area of the school grounds that previously contained compacted earth and weeds and beautified it in a manner that uses no additional resources. Students are sure to be surprised at the beautifully renovated gardens upon their return for the 2012-13 school year.
