5227 Chartres Street Property Donated to CSED

We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Mrs. Nelvie Mae Hamilton Winter for the generous donation of her former home at 5227 Chartres Street to the CSED. Mrs. Winter's contribution will support and enhance our mission of rebuilding the Lower 9th Ward in a more sustainable way.  Our goal is to renovate this property and use it as an educational model to illustrate how to affordably retrofit a historic house for maximum energy efficiency.  We also plan to create a mini-orchard in the backyard that will provide educational opportunities and fresh, local food for our community. This Sustainable Engagement & Development Center will be a resource for green living in the Lower 9th Ward.5227 Chartres Street Reduced
