Our Mission

The mission of The New Orleans Town Gardeners (NOTG) is to stimulate knowledge and a love of gardening within the community and to restore, improve, and protect the quality of the environment of Southeast Louisiana through educational programs and action in the fields of conservation and civic improvement.

Civic beautification is at the heart of our mission. Our club has led projects such as major restoration and landscaping of historic Jackson Square, Popp’s Bandstand in City Park, the Latter Library on St. Charles Avenue, and the Hermann-Grima/Gallier Historic Houses. We have also created a Garden Library at Tulane University featuring over 1,000 rare and regional garden books and documents. In 1998, our club laid the foundation for the nationally acclaimed Edible Schoolyard New Orleans at the Samuel Green Charter School. The program now serves six inner-city public charter schools with gardening, cooking, and nutrition education.
