Poston Gardens came to life through the inspired mind of John Poston, founder of Daymark Living, a residential community for adults with intellectual disabilities, that gives residents the opportunity to attain greater independence and a better quality of life. Daymark Living is located next to Poston Gardens.
To help support Daymark Living’s mission to help those with intellectual disabilities thrive, residents have the opportunity to work at Poston Gardens which serves as the for-profit arm of The Poston Gardens Foundation. With each tulip sale, a percentage of profits will go towards The Poston Gardens Foundation scholarships to assist future residents with the financial costs of living at Daymark Living.
After several trips to Holland and extensive research, which included soil testing at Texas A&M University, Poston was able to bring the project to life next door to Daymark Living. Skilled tulip experts have been overseeing the care and growth of all tulips from the very beginning. Prior to the planting process, each tulip bulb was chilled to 46 degrees to ensure blooming tulips by February or March.
