Southbound Gardens

General Info

It is our mission to prove that food can and should be grown sustainably, both environmentally and financially, in an urban setting. All of our produce is grown naturally within New Orleans city limits, without pesticides and with minimal organic fertilizer inputs. We seek to bring hard to find veggies well suited to our local climate and culture to the kitchen table.

To that end we also sell vegetable transplants for the home vegetable garden, bringing forth plants that are hard to find but easy to grow here. Like our produce, all of our plant starts are grown with minimum organic fertilizer inputs in a non-acclimatized hoop house to ensure they are well suited to withstand the rigors and whims of New Orleans’ temperamental climate and diverse wildlife, all while tasting great.

We believe your vegetables needn’t come from the other side of the country, across state lines, beyond the parish, or even past your property line.
