Why this Matters
For My Organization
Personally grown produce cuts down the need for produce grown by modern agricultural methods that are bad for the environment. In addition, food waste can be recycled and turned into compost for the garden. Plants also use CO2 and replace it with oxygen, bettering the air we breathe and the atmosphere. Gardens can also bring workers together and promote health awareness.
For New Orleans
Gardens are aestically pleasing for the community and provide a reminder for locals to eat healthily. Gardens can also bring the community together and promote the overall health of residents.
