A return to neighborhood gardens and
open air markets, a place to grow and thrive
with access to fresh, healthy food.
Surrounded by water, from the Mississippi River
to the wetlands of Bayou Bienvenue:
defining our past, the promise of our future.
New ideas for energy efficiency, water,
comfort and building materials that respect
our historic streets, homes and businesses.
They come from all walks of life: to renovate,
weatherize and plant — helping rebuild our
community through hope and hard work.
Honoring the people, culture and resilience
of the Lower 9th Ward – a spirit of survival,
creating new traditions that live on.
Envisioning a sustainable Lower 9th Ward,
full of life and possibilities — one resident,
one volunteer, one big idea at a time.
