Meet Our Raingardens- Groundwork New Orleans Fundraiser

3:00pm - 5:00pm

Join us for food, refreshments, and a live auction celebrating Groundwork's history in the community and raising funds for rejuvenation and maintenance of the O.C. Haley rain gardens!

Groundwork runs the Green Team, a job training program for high-school age urban youth. The Green Team learns everything from basic job skills, to presentation skills, to landscaping, science, and photography. We maintain a number of service learning sites throughout the city, including the O.C. Haley Raingardens, which were built in 2006. We also engage in water quality research, education, and community outreach.
