Episode 57: Lord, Lord, Lord

It was hard to imagine focusing on just one urban gardener in New Orleans… so we didn’t.  This video tells the story of several different New Orleans residents who came back to the city after the storm to rebuild and start making food in the city’s abandoned lots.  And you can’t tell a New Orleans story without music, thankfully one of our farmers happened to play in the Treme Brass Band!

    If you could make the Tweet button share something more compelling you would get more visitors to this page. I was in a hurry and tried to use it but it doesn’t have a real call to action or your Twitter account or anything that would compel anyone’s followers to want to come see what the Tweet is about.
