Dallas Architecture Forum presents Panel Discussion Series: Don Gatzke - The Social Impact of Greening the City.

In recent years, various forms of urban agriculture have been used across the country as the core of community stabilization and development, with a strong emphasis on improving the public health of neighborhood residents.  In Dallas, these urban farms include Paul Quinn College’s initiative called "We Over Me Urban Farm" and "Bonton Farms" in South Dallas, plus a number of businesses and organizations that produce and distribute locally grown produce.  Representatives of several urban agriculture projects in Dallas will discuss the objectives and impact of their projects on the overall goal of reintroducing nature and green space and solving the ‘food desert’ dilemma in urban areas.
