Through the tulip endeavor, Poston Gardens will aim to provide a life-changing opportunity for up to 10 residents of Daymark Living, said its founder John Poston.
Daymark Living is a resort-style residential community specifically built and staffed for people with Intellectual and Developmental Delays that opens this fall in Waxahachie.
Poston explained the tulip garden would also serve as an opportunity for residents to gain financial independence.
“It’s a rarity if they get hired and, if they do, they get minimum wage at best. So, I started thinking, ’how could Michael Poston make a living?″ So this will be a profit-sharing venture,” he said.
Michael is Poston’s son who lives with IDD and was the sole inspiration behind the creation of Daymark. It was one of his classmates at the Rise School in Dallas that planted the seed of the potential financial benefits that could be offered by Poston Gardens.
