In collaboration with The Composting Network, NOLA Green Roots is hosting an educational seminar for students to learn the basics of gardening and growing their own fresh food. Between 10 am-11 am, NOLA Green Roots is also providing free plants to nonprofit organizations, educational institutes with gardens or individual gardeners in the Greater New Orleans area.
NOLA Green Roots believes that gardens and access to fresh fruits and vegetables have the capacity to transform neighborhoods. To inspire future generations and spur more community gardening, we are giving away 18 free plants per registered community participant. Our only request is that you return the plastic starter container that houses the plants.
The Composting Network also has plenty of compost, soil and other gardening supplies for purchase at their location to further cultivate your new plants. Please register to sign up to receive your FREE plants on January 14th-15th between 10-11 am.
