We are sorry to announce that due to possible stormy conditions from Tropical Storm Karen, the Fall Garden Festival has been cancelled.
Grow Dat youth will be presenting at the Urban Farm showcase at the New Orleans Botanical Garden’s Fall Garden Festival this Saturday and Sunday. Youth will give demonstrations in making a raise bed, planting the fall garden, composting, and urban chicken keeping (cluck, cluck!)
Simultaneously, youth will be offering free tours of our farm site and selling beautiful trees! Enjoy a wonderful day in City Park by visiting both the festival and the farm.
