Our Mission

We believe that weaknesses in our food system don't simply end with more access to low-cost food and can't be solved without the help of growers. We support established and developing farmers in our community with technical and social support to build a stronger, more equipped community of growers in New Orleans and help all New Orleanians be part of a community food system. 


Get Involved

We love meeting new gardeners, plant lovers or people with a passion for community food. There are so many skills that this work takes, so please reach out if you'd like to get involved! 



Read about our programs, or check out the calendar to make future plans. 

Volunteer opportunities

Come to one of our Volunteer for Veggies times, or sign up to spend concetrated time working on a project or volunteering at the market. 

Make a Donation

Make a sustaining donation to SPROUT. We run on donations, grants, and money made from selling veggies and flowers. Your help is integral in our continued programming.



Community Gardeners

The ReFresh Community Farm is home to over 30 community gardeners who participate on a weekly basis in growing food as individuals and collectively. ReFresh community gardeners are available to talk 4 days a week at the garden and help teach classes and give tours of the farm. 



Community Classes

SPROUT NOLA staff has taught over 150 community classes since 2011, almost all completely free to the community. We offer classes for everyone from home gardeners to expirienced farmers looking to learn new technology. 



Pounds Of Food Produced

SPROUT NOLA has grown over 10,000 pounds of community food and has a goal of growing 2,500 pounds in 2019 alone.
