Just one of the ways we’re celebrating Earth Day 2011 is by partnering with the Promise of Peace Community Garden at Earth Day Dallas this weekend. This fun festival in the Dallas Arts District features exhibits, speakers, film, music, yoga and other activities for the whole family–all focused on making a positive impact on our environment.
The Promise of Peace Community Garden is an eco-friendly garden project with Woodrow Wilson High School located in East Dallas that teaches students how to create sustainable living habits, connect to and explore the rich resources in East Dallas and establish positive perspectives on the environment and healthy lifestyles.
Promise of Peace is a nonprofit seeking simple solutions for increasing the completion rate at Woodrow Wilson High School, as well as reducing the teenage pregnancy rate and gang involvement in the community. Promise of Peace offers a community garden project, photography explorations, and literacy classes for families of students attending Woodrow Wilson High School. To find out more, click here.
