DXC and Feed Dayton team up to create area's first urban farm training center.

DAYTON – A few weeks ago, it was just an empty lot beside an empty building; not much good to anybody. But in a few weeks, what was an eyesore and wasteland will transform into a source of food and education for Dayton residents.

“[Our purpose] is kind of two-fold,” said Feed Dayton Director Ken Carman. “The one is to grow high-nutrition food locally for the hungry. And then the complimentary element is we're also wanting to educate, train and equip people to either become urban farmers or at least to have backyard gardens.”
