NOLA Green Roots has doing it again!
As everyone is aware, the Ninth Ward was one of the hardest hit neighborhoods in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. The neighborhood is beginning to bounce back but there is still a lack of access to fresh fruits and vegetables. Therefore by adding this garden to the NOLA Green Roots network we are able to feed more folks and strength our commitment to building more resources to obtain fresh fruits and vegetables at a low cost.
The Ninth Ward Community Garden like NOLA Green Roots other locations will serve as a hub for its neighborhood, by teaching residents on how to garden properly including: testing soil and avoiding harmful chemical sprays, proper ways to harvest and preserve.
