Join us in fighting hunger, reducing obesity and eliminating nutrition related diseases!

Since its initiation in 2008, volunteers from all over the country as well as residents of New Orleans have participated in NOLA Green Roots’ activities and programs. Working together they have helped NOLA Green Roots achieve major milestones in improving access to fresh produce.

Weekly Volunteer Program

We are currently in need of volunteers Tuesdays and Thursday between 8:30 and 11:30am. These volunteers will help bring fresh produce to New Orleans residents through their work with our garden in Gentilly and will also learn valuable gardening knowledge in the process.

When you volunteer at NOLA Green Roots gardens you quickly impact thousands of people. In one day (or half day), you will help feed seniors and low-income families.

When: Tuesdays and Thursday between 8:30 and 11:30am

Where: 11201 Old Gentilly Road, New Orleans, LA 70129
