At 9am on Saturday morning the Growing Local NOLA campus in Central City, New Orleans was hopping. Thirty new freshman from Xavier University were busy cleaning, painting and planting! The volunteers participated in an orientation “Community Plunge”, a program designed to immerse incoming students in the culture of New Orleans by working with local organizations. Channel 4 came out to cover the event – check out the TV clip!
Many thanks to Louisiana Master Gardener, Debra Surtain, for arranging the event!
