Promise of Peace Gardens

Promise of Peace Gardens works with folks across North Texas to transform vacant spaces into thriving places. P.O.P. Gardens serve as a context for folks from all backgrounds to come together and learn, grow, and support one another. We have built three gardens where we deliver programming to children and their families as they explore living a sustainable life. We grow, harvest and prepare fresh clean food that we savor on a lovely table, family style. The children and their families gain access to healthier life styles, community involvement and and a sense of stewardship for the planet. As we grow, the Promise of Peace Gardens’ intent is to ensure that every child in every community has clean, locally sourced food on their plate. You can help us build one 12′ X4′ raised bed for a donation of $300.00 that will teach an entire classroom! You can help us plant that plot with non GMO, chemical free seeds and plants for a donation of $100.00. If you’d like to sponsor a child for Home Grown Earth Camps, please donate $250.00 for one semester. Thank you you for helping POP change the the world one seed at a time.
