Farming New Orleans is a 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to promote the cultivation of gardens, groves, and livestock as vehicles for education, building community, feeding the hungry, and promoting entrepreneurship in New Orleans. We grow food in community gardens in the Upper and Lower 9th Wards of New Orleans. Food is shared with neighbors and donated to local food banks.
Students will be planting, harvesting, weeding, mulching, mowing, building raised beds, and clearing debris. Students will also assist in distribution of harvest and outreach programs to neighbors.
You will learn how to grow food and maintain a community garden as well as how community gardens strive to combat food "deserts" in New Orleans.
