Our Success

Dallas’ finest public community garden celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2018. We were the first community garden sponsored by the City of Dallas a decade ago.

Many people visit us and participate in our activities every year. Our success is due to dedicated Dallas citizens and garden friends, corporations and foundations. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit under the federal tax code.

How to Contribute

Thanks to a donor for the $500 contribution! That and other gifts like it helped us recover from the devastating June 11, 2019 storm.

We need financial help in the form of gifts, grants and in-kind services. Let us know if you are able to help or give us tip a about a company or charitable foundation that might help. Contact the Board of Directors about contributing.

Our Needs

We need to buy tools, pay some utility costs, repair storm damages, and plant veggies.

In our support for area food banks, we need to cover costs to maintain our Donation Garden. Annually, LHCG has donated an average of two tons of fresh food that was grown and harvested by volunteers.
