Featured Sponsorships for 2023:
Since 1999, students from the Waldo Burton Memorial School have participated in Longue Vue’s Cultivating Communities outreach initiative. Cultivating Communities develops skills in gardening, entrepreneurship, and philanthropy. Through this year-long program, students learn about growing vegetables and herbs, marketing and selling produce at farmers markets, cooking and culinary careers, and local nonprofit organizations. The program culminates in a presentation of a check to a nonprofit selected by the students.
Contact Amy Graham, Director of Gardens at (504) 293-4718 to find out more or to designate a donation to this important program.
