Da Berry Fresh Market Garden Planting

Envision da Berry, a 501c3 non-profit organization owns and operates “da Berry Fresh Market” (BFM) which is a combination of retail farm stand and small network of neighborhood community gardens. Volunteers can expect these tasks: Gardening (70%), Farm Stand Operations(20%),  Community Outreach(10%). BFM opened in August 2017in  the middle of the Historic West End Cultural District of New Iberia, LA which has seen much decline over the past few decades.. We need assistance setting up the gardens to getting our crop inventory established. The surrounding under-served West End neighborhood has a median household income of $19K and has a majority African-American population. There’s been incidents of drug and gang related crime and violence that have been plaguing the impoverished neighborhood. A word of caution that you would be working in the middle of these areas at times but people are generally pretty curious and friendly.
