New Orleans turned this former golf course into the city's largest Urban Farm. Grow Dat Youth Farm has a seven-acre site where it grows about 12,000 pounds of produce per year.
That produce is sold at Farmers Markets, and redistributed to low-income residents. Grow Dat Youth Farm hosts leadership programs so teens can learn about sustainable farming.
Locals can take educational workshops on the Eco-Campus which is made from retrofitted shipping containers. Grow Dat Youth Farm brings city residents together to farm healthy food for their community.
