Saturday, November 16
El Centro College West Campus

Dallas, TX 75212
This highly interactive morning will connect you with local food producers, community groups, and educational resources.
Join us at El Centro College West Campus for this fast-paced and high energy event, comprised of brief presentations or “lightning talks” with round table discussions.
Lightning talks are 5-minute presentations, containing 20 PowerPoint slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds. When one presentation ends, another begins!
After the presentations are complete, we’ll transition into round table discussions where participants can have more in-depth discussion with the presenters.
The sessions are focused on three themes:
Local urban agriculture producers
Urban agriculture resources and education
Community-based organizations improving healthy food access
