Slow Food is a non-profit membership-supported organization that educates people about how their food choices affect the rest of the world. Today, we have over 80,000 members all over the world.  

The Dallas chapter of Slow Food was launched in the Spring of 2003 when interest in this area reached a critical mass. It is, by its nature, a grass-roots group that ebbs and flows based on what members want and contribute.  

Mission Statement
Our purpose is . . .
  •  to provide resources that facilitate transition toward sustainable living,
  •  to incubate ideas for local sustainability projects and services, and
  •  to raise awareness of key environmental issues that affect the Texoma region

Master Gardeners are members of the local community who take an active interest in their lawns, trees, shrubs, flowers and gardens. They are enthusiastic, willing to learn and to help others, and able to communicate with diverse groups of people.

What really sets Master Gardeners apart from other home gardeners is their special training in horticulture. In exchange for their training, persons who become Master Gardeners contribute time as volunteers, working through their Extension office to provide horticultural-related information to their communities.
Is the Master Gardener Program for Me?

To help you decide if you should apply to be a Master Gardener, ask yourself these questions:

    * Do I want to learn more about the culture and maintenance of many types of plants?
    * Am I eager to participate in a practical and intense training program?
    * Do I look forward to sharing my knowledge with people in my community?
    * Do I have enough time to attend training and to complete the volunteer service?
