The Glass House
Tarrant Area Food Bank Learning Garden
The TAFB Learning Garden is located on the northwest corner of the church's property, next to the Glass House. The parking lot can be accessed via Hemsell Place behind the church. TAFB built the learning garden at Ridglea to provide a place where community members can learn about effective gardening techniques while they help tend the garden and grow nutritious fruits and vegetables that are distributed to those in need. Each week, volunteers are invited to come to the TAFB Learning Garden to help plant and harvest fruits and vegetables, pull weeds, and learn new gardening skills. In addition, TAFB provides garden tours on the first Friday of every month at 10:00 am and hosts regular workshops on gardening techniques in the garden. To register for a garden workday, visit the TAFB Volunteer Page. For information on upcoming workshops, visit TAFB's Eventbrite page.
Depression Connection is dedicated to building supportive communities for those facing mental health challenges through peer-led support groups and educational outreach in Tarrant County. We provide a place and a process where change and recovery are possible. We present the opportunity for individuals to improve their health and wellness, live a self directed life, and strive to reach their full potential. Our help begins in providing the skills and tools needed to re-connect or regain the fullness, sense and purpose in living, that depression has taken away.
Ridglea hosts three Depression Connection group meetings each week, and all are free of charge. For more information, visit depressionconnection.org.
