Luckett Community Garden and Tree Farm in the Dalworth Neighborhood

Purpose: The Luckett Community Garden and Tree Farm was launched in 2003 by Keep Grand Prairie Beautiful and the Dalworth Weed & Seed Steering Committee, with the aid of a Weed & Seed grant from the U.S. Department of Justice. The Weed & Seed program’s goal is to weed out crime and seed in beneficial intervention and crime prevention programs. The application was filed based on the Broken Window theory which posits that a community that is apathetic when it comes to litter, code violations and community improvement, will experience a downward spiral that leads to crime, lower property values and a poor quality of life. Contrarily, a community that takes a proactive approach to these problems will experience less crime, higher property values and a better quality of life. Thus, the Luckett Community Garden and Tree Farm is a crime fighting garden!
