Hi to All:

First of all I want to thank and congratulate everyone for their hard work, and effort put into FWOP activities in these couple of weeks, we have achieved many things as an organization, and I want to let you know that without your help this couldn’t be possible, and I want to encourage us to keep up the good work. We did a great job planting in our exhibition garden, things are looking pretty good last time I checked, thank you to all of you

watering, and giving maintenance to our beautiful garden. We did an awesome job painting our beds, I think they look gorgeous, thank you so much Keith for donating the paint, and making the little bed for the flowers it looks really good. Finally last week fundraiser was a success, we were able to raise a good amount of money, and during this activity we were able to share our beautiful newsletter with some of the people that were kindly donated to our organization, our hope is to get more name recognition and I think this is a great way to do it, thank you so much for all of you that were there to help.

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!

We have received approval from Dr. Ross for the Community Garden Plot Project.

It will start as an Exhibition Garden for the fall and to allow for fundraising then have a Spring garden. 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

funding and UNT Dallas just spent $45 million on a LEEDS building. 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.
