Coppell Community Garden Celebrate 20 Years of Success

Since 1998, the Coppell Community Garden (CCG) has provided healthy, organic food to those in need. With major support from the City of Coppell and its many community volunteers, the organization has grown into a well-respected entity, both locally and nationally, over its twenty-year history.

Currently, there are 153 gardening plots spread among the Helping Hands Garden near Town Center (255 Parkway Blvd.), the Ground Delivery Garden (450 S. Denton Tap Rd.) and the newest location, the Old Town Garden at the Grapevine Senior and Community Center (345 W. Bethel Rd.).

Since the gardens' inception, approximately 227,000 pounds have been donated, equating to almost 189,000 meals. In 2018 alone, 18,289 pounds of food were collected, making it the most productive harvest to date. Food is distributed to the community through its primary partner, Metrocrest Services, which serves 600-700 people through its food pantry.

"The City's investment in this program has proven to be valued by the community, with more than 12,000 volunteer hours put in again this year," said Molly Bujanda, City of Coppell Community Programs Manager and liaison to Coppell Community Garden.

The CCG plans to build a greenhouse in the spring of 2019 to further increase its production and to provide seedlings to thirteen Coppell ISD school gardens.

"As we move into the future, we hope to continue to strengthen the community through our partnership with Coppell Community Garden and make an even greater impact over the next 20 years," said Bujanda.
