Welcome to Cities Connect, where we discuss issues that matter. What do roadside cleanup projects, park improvements, and community pollinator gardens have in common? In addition to improving the aesthetics of an area, they contribute to environmentally healthy, safe, and economically sound communities. The Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation focuses on projects that bring together individuals, businesses, and governments with the common goal of keeping communities clean, green, and beautiful. In this episode, Natalie Johnston-Russell, Executive Director of the Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation, shares KGBF's local initiatives and resources, including opportunities for community grants and in-kind support.
