Posted By on Mon, Sep 29, 2014 at 11:33 AM


Growing Local NOLA, an urban farm and community center in Central City, will officially open its doors this Saturday, October 4.

The center will serve as an education and demonstration farm that supports sustainable local food production through outreach, education, policy change and research. Growing Local NOLA also plans to offer a number of classes, from yoga to healthy cooking, and provide a space for urban farming in raised beds using recirculating farming techniques.

A training for new farmers on the nitty gritty details of farming life (including legal issues and green technology) will also be available, complete with a farming mentorship program.

Saturday's event features the holy trinity of frugal fun—free food, drinks and music—as well as the opportunity to see live demonstrations of the center's upcoming classes.

What: Growing Local NOLA grand opening
Where: 1750 Carondelet St.
When: Saturday, October 4th, 4:30 - 7:30 p.m.
