Garden Access to Food

East Baton Rouge Parish Housing Authority has partnered with Baton Roots Community Farm to install raised garden beds to grow vegetables and fruits that will produce a sustainable food source for residents at 11 of its communities. Baton Roots Community Farm is a collaborative effort between the Walls Project and BREC and operates the Walls Project Urban Farm on Winbourne Avenue. The farm blends hands-on training, master gardening education and creative placemaking to inspire a culture of health and wellness throughout the North Baton Rouge community. Baton Roots also manages three satellite farm plots at area high schools which creates decentralized fresh food distribution via a network of local partners.
