The current incarnation of the garden was funded by the American Heart Association and the Entertainment Industry Foundation. Both have generously supported the Garden and helped create a place where people from our community – young, old and in between – can learn about nutrition, math, science, composting and, of course, gardening.
Operation of the Garden is the responsibility of Dallas Farmers Market Friends and volunteers like you. "Farmer Kim" Aman, a DFMF board member, who was recognized as a 2013 WFAA Eco-Educator, worked with the American Heart Association to develop the educational curriculum. As the Dallas Farmers Market Field Trip Instructor, Farmer Kim plays host to students of local schools and teaches them about nutrition, the "seed to table process," and the many benefits of supporting our local agriculture.
