Bonton Farms' Daron Babcock is trying to change the poor neighborhood in South Dallas through urban farming

Bonton Farms

On Thursday, Bonton Farms Director Daron Babcock will be the featured speaker for Workbench@TheGrove’s summer series.  

Bonton Farms is situated in the South Dallas neighborhood known as Bonton, where 63 percent of its residents lack personal transportation and the nearest grocery store is a three-hour round-trip bus ride away, according to its website.
