Founders Garden Club of Dallas will present a series of workshops at the Dallas Arboretum, with the first one being Everything You Wanted to Know About Vegetable Gardening on March 10. The workshops will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Rosine Hall. The session is free with paid garden admission.


Founders Garden Club of Dallas, a Garden Club of America member, is sponsoring this day to help garden guests learn the essentials of planning, preparation, planting, growing and harvesting fresh vegetables – both in a garden plot or containers.


Current club President Barbara Hunt Crow said, With spring upon us, people become inspired to garden and grow. One goal of Founders is to be able to sponsor informative workshops, and the Dallas Arboretum is the perfect partner to help make it happen.



Dallas Arboretum's Vice President of Horticulture Jenny Wegley, a featured speaker for the workshop, will provide information on:


  • Preparation of the garden space
  • Vegetable selection
  • Seeding or planting
  • Plant needs
  • Keeping produce insect- and disease-free
  • Harvesting

After guests attend this informative workshop, they can tour the Dallas Arboretum's latest garden, A Tasteful Place. The new 3.5-acre, $12-million edible display garden showcases the best gardening practices with fruit, herbs and vegetables. The Potager Gardens, which translate as an ornamental kitchen garden, are a signature element of the development with in-season vegetables, herbs and flowers, planted ornamentally and interspersed with flowers to attract pollinators and beneficial insects. Of the four potagers, one is named for the late Marilyn R. Corrigan and the other for her daughter, Catherine A. Corrigan, a Founders Garden Club member.


For more information on the March 10 event, contact Mayra Salazar at 214-515-6677 or email msalazar 'at' dallasarboretum.org. The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens is located on the southeastern shore of White Rock Lake at 8525 Garland Road, Dallas, Texas 75218. The Dallas Arboretum is also the home of the internationally acclaimed Rory Meyers Children's Adventure Garden. The Arboretum is open daily from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. General admission is $15 for adults, $12 for seniors 65 and older, $10 for children 3-12 and free for Arboretum members and children two and under.
