Women's Council of the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden

To Support and Promote the Interest and Growth of The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden.
The Women's Council of the Dallas Arboretum is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of A Woman's Garden. The garden has been a focus of the Council for more than 20 years and is a principle garden at the Dallas Arboretum. It is comprised of two parts - Phase 1, which opened in 1997, and Phase 2, which was completed in 2006. Phase 1 is a 1.8-acre formal garden that holds several outdoor garden rooms overlooking White Rock Lake. Phase 2 boasts the addition of a Texas limestone bridge, 140-foot hanging garden and a wellspring nestled among Dawn Redwood trees. Both portions of the garden are designed to celebrate women and reflect their strength, creativity, courage and nurturing ability. In addition to funding the day-to-day maintenance of this area, there is a need this year for both restoration and replanting. Additionally, the Council is raising support for an endowment trust fund that would enable the garden's upkeep in perpetuity.
