New Location – White Rock Lake!

February 16, 2010

We’re committed to changing communities through local sustainable agriculture, and what better way than to partner up with a garden right in the middle of a community of under-served families?  Urban Acres is now teaming  up with a non-profit, Promise of Peace, in the East Dallas area near White Rock Lake. Promise of Peace is a group that focuses on improving the neighborhood surrounding Woodrow Wilson High School and has been given a grant to create a community garden in the area.  As part of the community garden location, we will also have a new Urban Acres “farm stand”!

We love Promise of Peace’s vision to get kids off the street and educate families about how to make life changes by “getting your hands in the dirt.”  We hope you’ll help us welcome our new friends.  The first pick-up at the White Rock location will be Saturday, March 6th.

Location: Promise of Peace Community Garden – 7446 East Grand, Dallas TX 75214  (Map)

Pick up your produce on Saturday mornings from 9:30am-12pm, starting March 6th.

Email us at info@urbanacresmarket.com if you want to join the White Rock location!

    I would like to share the bounty with someone or family. With the abundance of fruits and veggies for one order…. I may have more than can eat in a weeks time… Who wants to participate in a shared plan? Looking forward ~

    Hey Brian,

    Did you ever find someone to split a share with? If not, we can ask around and/or put the word out to our other White Rock patrons & see if we can find someone!

    I would LOVE to sign up but don’t have a need for everyone, so would love to split a share with someone in the White Rock area.

    Thanks!

      Hi Amy, Hopefully a fellow White Rock person will see this and contact you. Feel free to come to the store and shop the extra produce from Friday’s sort as well as other goodies we carry in the store. 🙂
