Food for Good Farm at Paul Quinn College
The Food for Good Farm is located on two acres of campus that was once home to the football field of Paul Quinn College located in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas, Texas. The farm is entering its third season on a field where 4 inches of football sod and soil were replaced with truckloads of organic material. Among the items growing on the Farm are corn, tomatoes, blueberries, squash, herbs, bees, and greens. The organic vegetables are used to feed students on the campus, restaurant-goers in Dallas, and local residents via the football field’s former hot dog stand.

Meanwhile, some chefs are rallying behind A Community Cooks, a farm dinner where money raised will be used to buy the farm a tractor and help pay for other operating expenses. The dinner will feature herbs, lettuces, and strawberries from the Farm and Will Allen of Milwaukee’s Growing Power will deliver the keynote speech.
