FWOP Team,

Warm ‘thank yous’ to the team and everyone from UNT Dallas: Assistant Provost Dr. Ross for his words and support, their faculty advisor Dr. Mason who did a great job leading and developing the garden, and Frances Rizzo, Carolyn Kimball and the entire FWOP team for putting this together. This is an exhibition garden, paving the way for the next big community garden which will make it possible for local produce to help the community and raise valuable horticulture awareness. Please forward to everyone not on the email list whom could benefit from the pictures.

Thank you again everyone, please continue breaking the myth of no effect!

The school is giving us an initial $500.00 I feel strongly that the guidelines for existing service learning programs at other universities such as the University of Indiana (Dr. Ross came from there) www.indstate.edu/publicservice/gardenproject.htm primarily for sustainability

The Dallas County Master Gardeners Association is ready to help us with the project along with Don Lambert, Gardening in Community Development(GICD) and Our Savior Community Gardens (where I did my service learning).Dr. Amanda Coleman-Mason, our advisor, has made a committment involving her HSML classes for the service learning hours needed by her students. Francis Rizo has also made a committment to provide her leadership especially to me. Thanks to all of you.
