Ten years after Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward still lacks a grocery store.
That’s why our families love community gardens – and access to free, nutritious food for their families.
On the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, we are dedicating an entire plot of land for a new garden that can support many families.
But we need your help! The garden needs a fence, planters, seeds and a small endowment for maintenance. We need to raise $5,000 this week to make this our best garden yet.
Please give what you can to help us grow!
Community gardens remain one of the best ways to access fresh food.
Beyond health and nutrition, gardens bring neighbors from all generations together – and help build community identity, reduce crime, create part-time jobs and generate income.
Your donations will support this wonderful gift to our families – please give what you can today!
