Brightside St. Louis

Brightside St. Louis (formerly Operation Brightside) has been dedicated to cleaning and greening St. Louis since 1982.  The organization helps make St. Louis a more beautiful place to live, work, learn and grow.

Brightside St. Louis would love to have help from Master Gardeners in caring for our Demonstration Garden as well as with other gardening projects, including providing direction to student and corporate volunteer groups.
