Urban Agriculture and Food Security: Connect with the Experts

Saturday, Nov. 16
9:00 a.m. to noon
El Centro College – West Campus
3330 N. Hampton Rd.
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

Lastly, be sure to follow us at @eccurbanagrr on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to stay in touch!
