Backyard Gardeners Network


The BGN is a Lower 9th Ward based nonprofit organization whose mission is “to sustain and strengthen the historically self-sufficient and deeply rooted community of the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans, LA using our own food growing traditions as a platform to build community, revitalize the neighborhood and preserve our cultural heritage.” We currently manage two community gardens in the Lower 9th Ward, the Laurentine Ernst Community Garden and the Guerilla Garden, and are spearheading the development of the Ernst Garden Resource Center.
