Hey we did some do-gooder plant thing!
Local nonprofit Bike Easy's motto is "Getting New Orleans Streets in Gear." They do a ton of work around town and have won praise for their bike safety advocacy.
Ninth Ward Nursery was approached by Bike Easy recently about donating plants for a "traffic calming" installation at the intersection of Elysian Fields Avenue and Mirabeau Street in the Gentilly neighborhood. The idea was to beautify a little corner of town and to raise awareness of the many cyclists that travel this corridor. We donated some plants to the project and are helping to maintain them for the next month, until they go in the ground as part of a permanent installation.
We love helping folks out and want to be more involved in community beautification projects. Got an idea? Get in touch!
