Grow Dat Youth Farm

Grow Dat Youth Farm teaches teens sustainable farming and feeds the New Orleans community.

New Orleans turned this former golf course into the city's largest Urban Farm. Grow Dat Youth Farm has a seven-acre site where it grows about 12,000 pounds of produce per year.

That produce is sold at Farmers Markets, and redistributed to low-income residents. Grow Dat Youth Farm hosts leadership programs so teens can learn about sustainable farming.

Locals can take educational workshops on the Eco-Campus which is made from retrofitted shipping containers. Grow Dat Youth Farm brings city residents together to farm healthy food for their community.
