The WE Over Me Farm at Paul Quinn College is a dynamic and innovative joint venture between Paul Quinn College and PepsiCo’s Food for Good Initiative. The partnership has three primary goals.
- Address the lack of affordable, healthy food options available to economically depressed areas in the City of Dallas.
- Create a replicable model for achieving sustainable urban re-development built around providing safe food options to economically depressed communities.
- Create a facility that will deliver preventative health care (that focuses on nutrition and exercise) to the underserved community surrounding the College.
The Farm is located on the two acres of campus that at one time housed the College football program. Among the items growing on the Farm are corn, tomatoes, blueberries, squash, herbs, bees, and greens. The produce will be used to feed students on the campus, restaurant-goers in Dallas, the Highland Hills/Paul Quinn College Community and young people from the southern sector of Dallas.
In addition to the food production, the College is building a Social Entrepreneurship curriculum around the Farm and using it as an agricultural lab. Students at the College will do everything from planting and harvesting crops to managing the business operation to running the PQC Farmers’ Market. The WE Over Me Farm at Paul Quinn College is just another example of the difference a Paul Quinn education will make in a student’s life and in the community.
A COMMUNITY COOKS
Every spring, Paul Quinn holds A Community Cooks, a fundraiser for the WE Over Me Farm. The event unites supporting chefs from the Dallas area to cook dishes using the organic ingredients from the farm. The event happens during the mild spring Dallas evening when patrons can dine around the beautiful nationally acclaimed urban garden.
