Community Garden

Encore Park Community Garden will enhance the quality of urban life in downtown Dallas by fostering community through mentoring, volunteer participation, education and environmental stewardship. 

Encore Park Community Garden (EPCG) is a place where people of all ages, abilities, backgrounds and cultures will come together around an innate connection to nature and a basic right to healthy food.  It will provide Stewpot guests opportunities for employment as well as garden-sourced meals at The Second Chance Café.  The garden will be available to the 500 children reached through programming at The Stewpot and First Presbyterian Church.  Wheelchair accessible plots ensure that gardeners, regardless of ability, are able to garden independently.  

Plant yourself here! 

If you would like to rent a plot, please download the application and EPCG guidelines.   Plots are available!
