YOU KEEP LONGUE VUE BEAUTIFUL

2024 FUNDRAISING PRIORITIES

ECOVUE

Longue Vue is committed to a respectful relationship with the natural environment. As a proud member of the Climate Toolkit Network through Phipps Conservatory, we have already eliminated leaf blowers on site (2019), eliminated single-use plastics (2021), gone plant-based in our cafe (2023), and use chemical-free gardening techniques.

Help us continue our journey in 2024! This year, our goal is to go 100% electric in our gardening equipment.

ELLEN SHIPMAN’S LEGACY

Landscape architect Ellen Shipman’s timeless, masterful gardens informed the architectural and interior character of the main house, completed in 1942, and earned Longue Vue National Historic Landmark status. A groundbreaking female entrepreneur and renowned horticulturist, Shipman’s signature is a part of every Longue Vue experience.

Gifts to The Shipman Collection will protect Shipman’s original design intent through strategic preservation and restoration, throughout our property.

DISCOVERY GARDEN

The Discovery Garden invites children to explore concepts of design and gardening relevant to Louisiana ecosystems and the values inherent in the Longue Vue vision. In 2024, we will construct the Ruth U. Fertel Discovery House, built with materials salvaged from a Louisiana Rosenwald School teacher’s residence. As the daughter of Julius Rosenwald, Edith Stern carried on his legacy by investing in the children of New Orleans: We are proud to honor this family legacy!

Longue Vue brings beauty to our community thanks to YOU!
