Good Karma, a t-shirt, free lettuce and more!
There is a guy in Dallas that wants to start an urban farm in Deep Ellum, and I want to help him.
I just backed his project with SEVENTY-FIVE of my hard earned bucks via Kickstarter, because I really want this to happen (and, I really want that tshirt and naming rights of a harvest!, not to mention a month's worth of lettuce - I know, right?)
You can read all about Jake's Terra Tech Farms and his plan to build an indoor hydroponic farm in Deep Ellum and provide fresh, sustainable, pesticide-free products to Dallas in The Advocate (I love this magazine!) or D Magazine's Side Dish. It sounds like the plan is to start on the farm before the end of summer.
Wishing Jake and his team all the best!
Now, LETTUCE get growin'!

Over the last five plus years, the Lower Greenville Avenue area has seen quite a revitalization. It's been exciting to see all the new restaurants and boutiques open up around 1922House. For years now, the word on the street was that Greenville Avenue was getting a food truck park. Supposedly, it was coming around the same time as the Trader Joe's grand opening and would be close in proximity.
Trader Joes is set to open in August.
Then, just a few days later an email from Eater landed in my inbox and here’s the Cliff Notes
It shall be called Truck Yard.
There will be a main permanent building that houses a restaurant, bar, restrooms (you know you were wondering! And as a resident of the neighborhood, I’m appreciative of this =), and possibly - an ice cream parlor.
There is talk of “tree-house” seating. Whaaaaaat? And I can walk to this place?!?! Right up the 1922House alley!
I’m looking forward to having such a fun place within walking distance of 1922House. Surely, one of my favorite food trucks, Easy Slider, will be one of the first to pop up in this new park. Why is Easy Slider one of my favorites, because they created the Sweet & Lowdown. This little slider is packed full of deliciousness = Angus beef, bacon, goat cheese, and wait for it....strawberry jam!
