I hate promoting one Dallas nonprofit over another nonprofit, I really do, but Promise of Peace Community Garden on 7440 East Grand Ave. is up against four other green-loving organizations for $20K in WFAA’s Project Green. In East Dallas, this green haven is a place where anyone can care for their own 12 x 4 ft. plot of land for $75 per year. Director Elizabeth Dry, a full-time teacher by day who started this community garden to help educate kids and help decrease the high-school drop out rate, would put that $20K towards programs like City Green, her fall kids camp where children can learn about horticulture and the environment. If you feel moved by Dry’s mission to help Dallas children, vote for Promise of Peace Garden every day until August 12.
