Every year, the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League gives out thousands of dollars to go to neighborhoods for a variety of different projects, from promoting a neighborhood's identity with sign toppers to beautification projects, such as creating pocket parks or enhancing a median strip, or helping a neighborhood provide security such as security cameras.  Whatever your neighborhood project is, the League can help.  Neighborhoods are the fabric of our community and however we can help that neighborhood, will help to make all of Oak Cliff a better place to live.

Become a Master Gardner

Hopefully many of you have noticed the work that Friends of Oak Cliff Parks have been doing in cooperation with the Dallas County Master Gardeners in Lake Cliff, Kidd Springs, Oak Cliff Founders’ and Kiest Memorial Garden. 

OOCCL members know better than anyone that there are some truly wrong ideas circulating in Dallas about Oak Cliff.  Oak Cliff members of the Master Gardeners want to increase the number of Oak Cliff residents who are Master Gardeners in an attempt to show others from other parts of Dallas that Oak Cliff is a good place to live, work and play. 

There are many potential future projects here in Oak Cliff similar to the 2008 restoration of the historic 1930s WPA Rose Gardens at Lake Cliff and the recently completed reconstruction of the 1934 WPA Rose Garden at Kiest Memorial Garden to complement the soon to be reconstructed WPA Pergola. What we are doing in Oak Cliff is historic restoration which needs more community support and participation and that is why I am appealing to the membership of the League.
Dallas County Master Gardeners have a training school every year.  This year the school begins on July 29 and goes until October 28. That is a Monday class from 8:30 to 4 PM with a break for lunch.  The classes are taught by A&M professors or local experts and are about soil, turf, trees, native plants, water conservation, composting, chemical usage and vegetable and flower gardening. Many of the classes are held in the County Agents Office at Marsh and Walnut Hill. 
The classes are interesting and very informative.  The fee is $ 205 for the classes and includes the text book which is the Texas Master Gardener Handbook.  There are 84 hours of class which are filled with useful information by excellent speakers.  Once all the classwork is finished, the students become Interns and must volunteer in approved projects for 72 hours during the following 12 months to become Certified Master Gardeners. 
Please take time to look at the Dallas County Master Gardener web site at www.dallascountymastergardeners.org or call 214-904-3053 for more complete information.  The applications must be submitted by May 28.  I hope that some of you will come join us.
