Tour GROW North Texas’ urban farm serving the community of Far East Dallas and beyond. Owenwood Farm grows seasonal fruits and vegetables, providing education and community opportunities while strengthening the local food system.

If you’ve never been on a farm, this is your chance to see how seasonal fruits and vegetables are produced in North Texas. The 1.5-hour outdoor tour June 20 will show you a working urban farm in Dallas that uses sustainable and regenerative production practices. You will also learn more about these practices and see them in action.

This is a great tour for any aspiring urban farmers and gardeners who want a chance to see an operation in practice and ask questions about how they started: The nonprofit behind this farm literally wrote the book on how to do this yourself in Dallas.

A Growing Urban Farm

For your tour, the farm team will share with you not only what crops are being produced but also the work of GROW North Texas (GNTX) and Owenwood Farm to increase the food produced in the local area. Owenwood Farm has just over a 1/2 acre in production along with a community fruit tree orchard that is open to the public year round. On your tour, you learn more about the vision for the full 3-acre urban farm.

Owenwood Farm currently provides produce to the neighborhood through a weekly farm stand as well as supports Fresh Stop Farm Stands, another GNTX program.
