Old Aurora Community Garden
New Orleans, LA
Participant : Valerie Woziniak
Contractor : Derek Brown

Valerie is truly a community catalyst and brings a unique vision to Growing Home. In just two months, she transformed her lot in Algiers into the Old Aurora Community Garden. It is a rare person who will so selflessly offer their land to public use. She worked swiftly and with great resolve to plan each step of the process and make this a reality. Many friends and neighbors are inspired and are flocking to participate in the garden where Val waits with open arms.

 

We helped her in the early stages of planning, which involved developing a site design, looking at her budget and matching her with a good contractor.
