The Problem

Our Growing Green GROW Baton Rouge YEZ Urban Gardening initiative focuses on providing healthy food in food deserts by allowing youth to work together to grow their own fruits and vegetables.

Our Plan

Part of the beauty of the Grow Baton Rouge YEZ Urban Gardening initiative is that it will help bring our community together and unite them. The “neighborhood sharing” portion of the program seeks to allow youth and community members who grow different things to barter with others to fulfill a full range of vegetables for their households. When people begin to help feed each other, this creates a bond and a certain trust that allows so much more!
