NEW ORLEANS — Last weekend, I visited Our School at Blair Grocery, an alternative, hands-on school and non-profit organization focused on teaching youth in the Lower Ninth Ward the principles of urban farming and sustainability.

A student plants a seed and then sees a ting seedling within days? That is an easy lesson in science. Contrast fresh heirloom tomatoes with a pinch of salt to fast food? Welcome to nutrition 101. We can’t afford to raise a generation that does not get whole foods and we hardly need more folks who do not feel connected and thus a responsibility to the earth.
110 GARDENS +
Our team with the help of volunteers is so efficient that we build start to finish in one day. Redwood boxes, controlled drip irrigation, picnic tables and super fertile soil. Our gardens work!
THE GARDEN RANGERS
Our garden rangers are on site weekly caring for the edible garden and delivering our straightforward and cheerful curriculum. We amend the soil, fix the irrigation and engage the community.
Our interdisciplinary curriculum provides youth opportunities to explore in an outdoor setting. We teach K-12 students everything from cooking skills to environmental stewardship and history to social justice. It is rooted in the principals of both place-based and experiential learning models.
We are like no other non-profit. Nobody makes more than a school district custodian. Everybody gets their hands dirty. We are efficient. We are as frugal as a farmer. We have six company vehicles. 4 trailers. A car to haul them and a small tractor. We are different.
There are many ways you can make a difference. We get that. We ask you to invest in what we are trying to do! Help kids eat healthy. Help kids appreciate and respect our planet. Help us partner with public schools.
