Urban gardening project starts in New Orleans

Mark your calendar if you are in the New Orleans area to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony on April 23 at 11 a.m. at a new LSU AgCenter vegetable plot located  next door to the New Orleans Convention Center on the corner of Tchoupitoulas and Henderson St. 

For the next two years tomato research will be conducted on the one-quarter acre plot to evaluate commercial fertilizers over organic types in vegetable gardening, according to LSU AgCenter assistant director Bobby Fletcher.
Fletcher will evaluate the effectiveness and economics of organic fertilizer and monitor disease. For more, click here.
