The Coppell Community Garden, an all volunteer run organization, is successful because of the many volunteers joined in the effort to build community and healthy living in Coppell. The volunteers have learned, planned, and worked with one another, built on what they believe, learned by observing and doing, to develop a system of transformation for each individual involved throughout the larger community. Annually the organization logs over 6,000 volunteer hours.
