Meet Our Board & Garden Managers

Managed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors and Garden Managers who donate their time and wisdom

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit under the federal tax code, Dallas Is Gardening Inc., DBA Lake Highlands Community Garden.

Our Mission

Join Us

Every year we look for gardeners who demonstrate an interest in the care and improvement of our overall community. We poll gardeners at the beginning of each year, asking them to volunteer in activities that they might have a special interest or talent.

Serving on the board of directors is one area. Current board members nominate new board members who serve an indefinite term based upon the person’s time to attend board meetings and to provide leadership.
