Through our Shared Harvest program, we share 30% of the food we grow.
Grow Dat works to build solidarity relationships with other local organizations whose mission and values are in alignment with ours. We share 30% of produce grown on the farm with our Shared Harvest partners and facilitate opportunities for youth employees and members of our partner organizations to engage in mutual educational exchanges. By deepening our connections with other groups committed to building collective power, we increase our capacity to work towards a more just and equitable food system for New Orleans.
All potential Shared Harvest partners must fill out an application form, found here:
