Dickerson Civic Center at Paul Quinn College We Over Me Urban Farm

The perfect Autumn weather in Dallas was the ideal background for our Dickerson Civic Center outing to Paul Quinn College and their amazing “We over Me” organic, urban farm in the heart of southern Dallas!

Dickerson Civic Center founder Linda Lamar was able to volunteer alongside service-learning students from The Hockaday School, Southern Methodist University and others who showed up to participate on Second Saturday Volunteer Day (held every month).

October is planting and pruning time at the garden, pulling up the early season vegetation that has already produced and training the current crops like okra.

After meeting The Hockaday School service-learning coordinator, Laura Day, and their ten or more girls, Lamar was also able to meet with Paul Quinn volunteer-coordinator and Lead Farmer, Darcia Houston, about innovative ways Dickerson Civic Center and Paul Quinn College might collaborate.
