This urban farm advocates garden education.

SPROUT, which stands for Sustainable Produce Reaching Our Urban Table, is one of a growing number of organizations improving New Orleans’ access to healthy food. Last fall, SPROUT NOLA helped open the ReFresh Community Garden in Mid-City, and, last month, the garden held its first community-gardening class.

SPROUT bills itself as “an interactive urban farm dedicated to spreading the love of growing fresh, healthy food.” Through partnerships with organizations like The ReFresh Project, Good Eggs NOLA, Liberty’s Kitchen and the New Orleans Food & Farm Network, SPROUT founders Emily Mickley-Doyle and Matt Glassman don’t just champion healthy eating — they teach community members how to grow their own produce.
