GDOGC's 2019-2020 CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTION

 
Encore Park Community Gardens - Recipient of 2019-2020 GDOGC Annual Contribution
For several years running, GDOGC has given an annual contribution to a non-profit organization that demonstrates a vision of community service through gardening. In continuing that charitable tradition, this past April 2020 GDOGC presented Encore Park Community Garden with a monetary gift that will benefit The Stewpot Garden Club and their worthwhile programs.
Encore Park Community Garden was opened April 22, 2014, Earth Day. This garden was the vision of a number of people from First Presbyterian Church of Dallas, The Stewpot, and several community organizations. The Stewpot started The Stewpot Garden Club to benefit food insecure and often homeless clients from The Stewpot who had an interest in gardening. Today, The Stewpot contracts with a Horticultural Therapist to work with at-risk clients in the garden to develop gardening skills as well as important life skills. The vegetables that are grown are harvested and donated to The Bridge and The Stewpot for meal preparation.
Laura Westerlage (R), Director of Client Services at The Stewpot, accepted the donation from Betsy Porter (L), GDOGC Hospitality Chair, on behalf of The Stewpot.
