Hanahan, South Carolina – January 31, 2015 @ 9:00 am – Keep Hanahan Beautiful (KHB) breaks ground at the new Hanahan Public Library to build a 770 square-foot Butterfly/Pollinator Garden.

KHB’s first major undertaking since becoming Affiliates of the Keep America Beautiful Program a few months ago.  Along with Community leaders, KHB will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony followed by breaking ground when volunteers from all over will unite to start the first phase of the new Butterfly Garden, which will be located on the grounds of the recently erected Hanahan Public Library.

KHB was initiated by members of the Berkeley Hills Garden Club a few months ago, and has quickly grown to include several hundred members. The group has received the support of the Hanahan City Council and Berkeley County and has been the recipient of several Grant Awards.  KHB has completed many small projects including  a Partnership with the Fishburne Head Start Program to build a sensory garden for their school in addition to implementing a recycling program.  The City’s Butterfly garden will be their largest project to date, requiring the development of several hundred square feet immediately adjacent to the Hanahan Public Library will house a Butterfly/Pollinator Garden as well as a Rain Garden with a state of the art Rainwater Harvesting System.  In addition to the City of Hanahan and Berkeley County, the City’s new Butterfly Garden has received support from Cypress Gardens, Clemson Extension Service Master Gardeners, Bee’s Ferry Landfill, Natural Directions Tree Service, and Lowe’s.

Volunteers are still needed for the January 31st work-day and everyone is welcome.  For more information on the Keep Hanahan Beautiful Program, or how to volunteer for the butterfly garden or any other programs, contact us at the City of Hanahan or like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/hanahanbeautificationfriends.
