Last October, at the Pecha Kucha Night at the Wyly held in conjunction with Idea Week, I got a chance to experience Elizabeth Wattley’s show-and-tell performance about Paul Quinn College’s Farm for Good Farm. Really quick: since eliminating its football program, PQC turned its former football field into a farm run by students, the harvest from which is sold on campus and in local markets, and also distributed in the nearby area, which has traditionally had a low supply of fresh produce. It’s an awesome idea awesomely executed.
Which brings me to this Friday. On Friday, the 18th, from 10-4 they are getting the farm ready for winter planting. You can help them out. You should. All the relevant info is right here.
