  • Garden Inspirations
    "Gardens are a lot like people,” Marilyn Simmons told Now Magazines. “As they grow and mature, they come into their own.” Marilyn and her daughter Donelle, owners of Garden Inspirations, have their own unique plot. “A Radio Flyer wagon is home to an assortment of flowers and trailing potato vines and an herb garden is flourishing in a nonfunctioning barbecue grill.” At their farm, the two work to show pupils how to plant their own beds with pesticide-free veggies, which blossom into sources of personal pride. The full schedule of classes includes introductory courses on overcoming the gamut of challenges that aspiring gardeners face, such as inhospitable soil, lack of time, and accidentally planting their car keys. Knowledgeable about diverse garden types—including rooftop, field, and aquaponic—the instructors impart their wisdom on the best kind of garden for each grower’s individual needs, as well as which vegetable varieties grow most readily in North Texas and how to plant them. When not brewing compost tea or working beneath trellises tangled in emerald wisps, the crew does a radio show which talks about how to obtain baskets of naturally grown peaches, cucumbers, and squash.

  • St. Alcuin Montessori School
    Most Montessori schools shape their curriculum around the teachings of Maria Montessori, the Italian educator whose name is synonymous with encouraging children’s naturally developing intellect. And while St. Alcuin does just that, they also honor the other figure in their moniker—Alcuin, who tutored Charlemagne’s sons and turned York’s cathedral school into a legendary institution. At St. Alcuin, staff adopt a philosophy that encompasses the medieval scholar’s work and also inspires cooperation, independence, and imagination, whether students are conducting a science experiment in class or stretching the time-space continuum to make day camp last longer. Even when the school year ends, St. Alcuin keeps kids engaged with enriching summer camps that foster independence and community building. Adventure camps feature exciting themes that acquaint campers with live animals, challenge them to build their own kites, or teach them about space travel. Meanwhile, sports camps and enrichment camps let children explore their passions. The school also offers academic camps that give students a leg up when school is back in session, helping kids learn a new language, musical instrument, or useful study skills.

  • The Tutoring Place
    What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? We have been locally owned and operated since 1999. Because we aren't a franchise, we can provide individualized services rather than force students to fit our curriculum. All tutoring is done at our location, and all tutors have passed background checks. Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring? Typically, students come with things they want to work on (worksheets, workbooks, test reviews, etc.), but we can provide materials for students who want extra practice or who want to work on a subject over the summer. What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Everyone at The Tutoring Place loves students and values education. We seek to help students who are struggling with their academic course loads, their busy schedules, or both. What do you love most about your job? We love seeing students come to enjoy their schoolwork and hearing how students' grades and confidence have improved during their time with us.

  • Balloon Adventures
    Wayne Standefer, the head pilot at Balloon Adventures, is well versed in Dallas-area scenery and topography, knowledge that helps him regale passengers with information during flights. The adventure begins as the aircraft is brought to life before your eyes. Once his balloon reaches its full height—more than 10 stories—Standefer invites you inside the tightly woven wicker basket to soar above rooftops and trees and dip low over fields and rivers. Total flight time is usually around an hour, though the whole experience can take three times as long from start to finish. Balloon Adventures also charters its services for weddings, arranges surprise flights for special occasions, and offers instruction in specific tasks such as rigging the balloon, navigating in-flight, and shooing away flocks of paper airplanes. In addition, the company participates in hot-air-balloon festivals, where clouds of bright purple, orange, and yellow balloons fill the daytime sky or illuminate the festival grounds at night.
