The Community Garden Convening

October 9 – 12
Hosted by The Renaissance Project and the LSU AgCenter

Interested in working hands-on with community gardens in the New Orleans area?

The Community Garden Convening has got the opportunity for you! The New Orleans-based convening offers many locations where attendees will work to improve or construct parts of community garden sites. Join us for a weekend of service on almost 20 sites throughout Orleans Parish as well as New Orleans food and fun on October 9-12, 2008!

The event was originally slated to be held by the American Community Gardening Association (ACGA), but has now been supported by a partnership of The Renaissance Project and the LSU AgCenter. Though the sponsorship has changed, the commitment to urban agriculture in New Orleans has not.
