Coppell Community Garden Program Sets New Records

The Coppell Community Garden program has set a new annual donation record and surpassed another milestone in cumulative donations as of the end of 2019.

At 20,328 pounds, our total annual donation for 2019 surpassed 20,000 pounds for the first time in the twenty-one year history of the garden program. Our largest garden, Ground Delivery (next to the Coppell Post Office), contributed 9,171 pounds to the total. Our newest garden, Old Town (next to the Coppell Senior Center), set a record with 5,691 pounds donated. The Helping Hands garden (located in the Coppell Town Center) contributed 5,467 pounds – an all-time record – exceeding it’s past record annual donation by more than 10%.

At 250,027 pounds, the cumulative donation from the garden program has now exceeded 125 tons over twenty-one years. The cumulative donation surpassed 100 tons in 2017, the first year that the Old Town garden began operation and has substantially accelerated since then.
