A little about Guerrilla Garden:

VISION – A vibrant greenspace in place of blighted land where families can congregate and socialize, grow vegetables and pick from fruit trees.

The Guerrilla Garden is a project conceived, developed and implemented by Lower Ninth Ward residents committed to community revitalization. Beginning in April 2009, residents and waves of volunteers from around the country have worked together clearing this lot, planning the space, securing resources. Once an overgrown dumping ground, this space is now a beautiful community green space, featuring a small fruit tree grove, a shade structure, raised garden beds, and an outdoor kitchen space. The Guerrilla Garden is about community building and community ownership, eliminating blight and improving food access. It is meant to be a place for folks of all ages to get together and learn from each other.


Food and drinks will be provided. No experience is necessary. Children are welcome to attend.
