2018 City Of Carrollton Outstanding Community Organization Award

During the 2018 Carrollton Citizen Event Night, the Giving Garden of Carrollton was awarded the 2018 City Of Carrollton Outstanding Community Organization Award.

City of Carrollton Outstanding Community Organization Award

The Giving Garden, Carrollton’s first community garden, provides a sustainable gardening opportunity for the citizens of Carrollton without regard to demographic or socioeconomic status. The organization donates half of what they grow to non-profit pantries so that those in need in our community may enjoy the benefits of fresh produce. The Giving Garden promotes organic food practices, education and recreation, social interaction, philanthropy, conservation, exercise and therapy, green space, and neighborhood and community development. The Giving Garden also mentors the start-up of other community gardens in Carrollton.

In 2017, the Giving Garden donated 3,200 pounds of organic produce to Christian Community Action and Aldersgate United Methodist Church Food Share, exceeding 2016’s record by nearly a half-ton.
