APEX In Action is the name for the Community Service part of our organization. Come and join us as we take Action to make a difference in our community.

Welcome to our next GICD project at the East Dallas Asian Gardens. We had a lot of fun last time, so come and join us again at the GICD Annual Plant Sale. A few hours of your time will make a huge difference to the lives of many who count on these gardens to thrive. We need volunteers to help with the following:

* Assist buyers with their selections and carrying them from the garden to the car
* Cambodian speakers to help translate for gardeners to their customer
* Watering plants
* Cleaning up the trays and restocking plants/vegetables ready for sale
* Tour guides to give tours of the garden and provide more information about GICD (guides will need to attend a special training)

Gardeners in Community Development (GICD)
is a Dallas area nonprofit organization whose purpose is to promote community gardening as a way to enhance neighborhood life. Each year GICD makes it possible for hundreds of Dallas area families, mostly low-income, to enjoy fresh vegetables, herbs, fruits and flowers grown in the community gardens.

There are 3 gardens in East Dallas known as the Asian Gardens. These gardens were started in 1987 as a project to assist the Southeast Asian refugee community. Our first project will focus on the pathways through the main market garden. The farmers are getting older and do not have the energy to keep up with the common areas. This market garden also grows extra vegetables which are donated to area food banks. For more information, please visit www.gardendallas.org.
