Pick of the Week:
Phenomenal Programs

It’s a week to support school gardens at the Crescent City Farmers Market. The Longue Vue House and Gardens Cultivating Communities students will have their beautiful succulent arrangements and homemade hot sauce available for purchase at the Tuesday market. Then on Thursday, the Edible Schoolyard students from Samuel J. Green will be out shopping! Continue to support the CCFM, and you’ll continue to support these phenomenal programs.
