The Women’s Council of the Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Garden is a Texas-based 501 © (3) non-profit organization. Organized in 1982, the primary purpose of the Women’s Council is to support and promote the interest in and growth of the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden through its financial support and membership involvement of its approximately 650 members.
Since 1986 the major goal of the Women’s Council has been the design, construction, funding and endowment of A Woman’s Garden at The Dallas Arboretum. A Woman’s Garden is the only public garden in the nation conceived by women, funded by the efforts of women and dedicated to the spirit of women. Phase I opened in September 1997 and Phase II in March 2006. Efforts continue to expand and improve these fabulous acres of garden in the center of the Dallas Arboretum.
Financial support for A Woman’s Garden comes mainly from fundraising events, as well as generous donor gifts, toward named features in the Garden. The leadership of this organization plans and executes events such as: A Writer’s Garden, consisting of a series of Book Reviews; three General Membership meetings with programs; trips and the well-known Mad Hatter’s Tea party, to name a few.
