Lower 9 Growing Strong

The Lower 9th Ward has a rich cultural tradition of growing food. We work to encourage and support that tradition, and use it as a community-building tool. We want to bring people together in the gardens to grow, both literally and figuratively.

Lower 9 Growing Strong builds upon the community‚Äôs already-established culture of growing and preparing food to engage Lower Ninth Ward children and families in activities which promote health, close-knit community and self-reliance.
