We've been busy on Marais! Below you will see that the hoop
house has been clothed with shade and our basil is producing!

We've been amending our garden beds on Marais! Below you'll see a picture of the 'Elan crew amending the existing soil with coffee chaff and compost. The chaff was donated to us by the folks at Dupuy Storage in the Marigny. It serves as a source of nitrogen as well as assists in loosening the texture of our heavy clay soil.

Here is a garden helper, Paul, working with Teresa to transplant some of our summer tomatoes!

Last Thursday a group of volunteers from Melbourne, FL, partnered with MissionLab here in New Orleans, worked with us on the garden site. From re-organizing our tools and garden storage to weeding the future kids garden these folks worked with joy and laughter. Prior to seemingly monsoon rains a little sunflower and her nurturer visited us on site to observe the beginnings of a productive garden space. We are so thankful to have had guest in the garden!

Last week Grace Community School(pictured below) from Tyler, TX and Liberty Church from Broken Arrow, OK joined us on site to finish out the build of the garden beds. We now have 30 beds in total!
Thanks to these two teams for serving with joy!
