Please join Friends of Lafitte Greenway for the Growing the Greenway Action Committee Kickoff Meeting!
On May 27-28, Friends of Lafitte Greenway and partners hosted the Local Foods Local Places Workshop. Over 80 residents and stakeholders gave their ideas to develop a Strategic Action Plan to increase access to healthy local foods in the Lafitte Corridor. We are pleased to present the draft of Building Our Local Food Economy: A Strategic Action Plan for the Lafitte Corridor, a community-based plan to advocate for and create community gardens along the Lafitte Greenway, available for download at lafittegreenway.org/LFLP1.
This is the kickoff meeting of the Growing the Greenway Action Committee that will work to implement the Strategic Action Plan. The committee’s mission is to advocate for and create community gardens along the Lafitte Greenway, which will improve health outcomes of local residents, strengthen neighborhood bonds, support environmental stewardship education, and foster economic growth in the Lafitte Corridor.
