Trog Trogdon grew up in a small town in Missouri with big dreams for his future.
After graduating from high school, he moved to North Carolina for college, where he planned to study business in order to equip him with the skills he needed to succeed in the world of finance.
After speaking with his pastor, Trog switched from the business world to full time church ministry.
The pastor then connected him with a friend, Daron Babcock, who was using a small garden and aquaponics unit on the side of his house to connect with and serve the underprivileged neighbors in his community.
What began as a small project in Daron’s garden grew into what the city of Dallas now knows and loves as Bonton Farms.
Using the organization’s urban farm as the crux of the program, Bonton Farms strives to provide fresh foods to the community, create opportunities for meaningful employment, and ignite hopein a neighborhood that has struggled to survive.
