We Need Your Help to get to Growing Power!




As a Growing Power Regional Training Center, part of our work is providing training in urban micro farming techniques pioneered by Growing Power.

So we want to get some of our newest staff members, Cherry, Derrick, and Jeremiah up to Growing Power for they're next "From the Ground Up" Workshop Weekend, February 18th & 19th.

But gas isn't cheap, nor are registration fees, so in order to get up there we need to raise $1500 by next Thursday, the 16th. Donations can be made through this website (on the right hand side), directly through any Chase bank (please inquire), or by check. Email jamie@osbgnola.org to let us know that your donation is intended for the Growing Power trip.

Support the future of urban farming innovation, green collar jobs, and local food security impact economy!
