Fort Worth Beautiful Award

 The Fort Worth Beautiful Award was established in 1987 and is presented annually by The Fort Worth Garden Club.  The longevity of the Award speaks to the value of beautifying our City. Beauty is found not only in landscape design but also in Conservation, Sustainability and Preservation. Above all there is beauty in educating about these broader aspects of our living environment.

Congratulations to the University of North Texas Health Science Center, 3500 Camp Bowie Blvd. Formerly TCOM, UNTHSC is celebrating 50 years of leadership in training our medical professionals.

Set in the heart of the Cultural District, the campus is a joy to wander. Diverse plantings and thoughtful maintenance are evident in the variety of plants. American Beautyberry, Oakleaf Hydrangea, Hardy grasses, Cedar Elm, Redbud, Honey Locust and others create welcoming gathering spaces. A surprising gem is their Medicinal Garden planted with herbs for whatever ails you!

 

Congratulations to Tarrant County College, Northwest Campus 4801 Marine Creek Parkway. TCC Northwest is located on the edge of Marine Creek Lake.

TCC NW offers a HORTICULTURE PROGRAM focusing on Landscaping, Plant Health and Irrigation. The campus is also home to the Hadley Center of Excellence in Aviation, the Criminal Justice Training Center and the Fire Service Training Center.

This expansive campus springs forth from the Prairie. Mesquite, Live Oak, boulders and hardy plants such as salvia, yucca and native grasses welcome you to the campus. What a joy to stumble upon the Marine Creek Discovery Center, a diverse habitat where plants and wildlife thrive. A ‘Pocket Prairie’ along the lake!
