Students at Bowie Elementary are enthusiastic about planting and science projects.

That’s why Keep Midland Beautiful, in partnership with Colgate energy, constructed an outdoor planting area earlier this month.  Colgate Energy agreed to purchase the materials needed for the project and provide employees to help install the materials. This new planting area will allow students to plant flowers and vegetables, study their growth and enjoy the fruits of their efforts at harvest time.

“When students get involved in planting and gardening, the programs are much more successful because the kids want to see results and do something positive for the environment, and the motivation spreads to the adults in their lives as well,” Keep Midland Beautiful Executive Director, Doreen Womack said in a press release. “We are truly excited about this partnership with Colgate Energy and Bowie Elementary, and we are extremely grateful to Colgate Energy for making this gift to the school possible.”

KMB and Colgate Energy stated they were excited about their partnership that makes the presentation of this garden that includes drip irrigation possible because environmental education is a priority for both groups. 

John Bell, Senior Vice President of Colgate Energy added, “Partnering with Keep Midland Beautiful and Bowie Elementary is a great way for Colgate Energy to give back to our community financially and personally.  We look forward to working with Keep Midland Beautiful and local elementary schools spearheading similar projects in the future.”

Agave Garden in Midland supplies some of the materials for this project at Bowie Elementary.
