Owenwood Farm and neighbor SpacE
The Owenwood Farm and Neighbor Space is a collective of nonprofits and do-gooders who are organizing around the talents, skills, and passions of those who live in Far East Dallas. The old church space (formerly Owenwood United Methodist Church), will become a Senior Center, house after-school programs, provide early childhood development, ESL, GED, and entrepreneurship classes. Partners like Diapers Etc, and Hope Supply Co are already hard at work and have distributed over 100,000 diapers and hygiene supplies into the surrounding neighborhoods. Grow North Texas is creating a 4-acre urban farm that will bring fresh produce to the neighborhood to alleviate food insecurity in our community.
Many neighborhood events, including community theatre, concerts, movie nights, and potlucks are being hosted at Owenwood and there are plans to grow these programs in the future. White Rock Community Church, which worships on Sunday mornings, also conducts an outreach program six times a month at this site through White Rock Friends. Simple Church Owenwood holds regular worship on Tuesday nights. We believe that when folks eat, cook, work, converse, play, sing, worship, and serve together we can change the world!
