Truck Farm Fun Run to Benefit Education
Apr 04, 2013 01:00AM
The second annual DFW Truck Farm Fun Run will take place at 8:30 a.m., April 21, at Earth Day Dallas, prior to the festival’s Sunday opening at Fair Park. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. Proceeds from the race will benefit the DFW Truck Farm, which is used to teach kids and the community about growing local foods and gardening in small spaces.
In this year’s Run Like a Farmer contest, the top three winners will be determined by local farmers. Participants will pass by the Truck Farm, enjoy yoga pose stops along the course and plant Baker Creek heirloom seeds throughout the run in Smart Pots. The containers will be donated to St. Joseph’s school garden, in Waxahachie, Texas, after the event.
