Charlie Grant Garden at Dell Children’s Medical Center

(Missing photo – please let us know if you have a photo of this garden to share!)


In the late fall of 2012, Grow Together, an Austin organization, met with the Dell Children’s Healthy Hospital Committee to discuss partnering to build a vegetable garden at Dell Children’s Medical Center (DCMC). Grow Together offered a grant to DCMC and with leadership approval, the garden was planted April 2013. The garden is maintained by staff and volunteers, with the leadership of our Master Gardener, Ken Ming. Beneficiaries of the garden produce include gardeners, staff, Texas Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Childhood Obesity patients and families, and visitors. We also have events in conjunction with the hospital’s cafeteria where the produce is given away on a donation basis. We have received funding from the Charles Grant Foundation to expand the garden and create a more interactive, museum-like environment for patients and visitors to be able to use.
