Meet the newest addition to our Dauphine Community Orchard! A fig tree, generously donated by Stephanie Bruno, has found a home in our citrus orchard. Stephanie is a free lance writer and ardent supporter of the Lower 9th Ward Community. She helped to facilitate the donation of this property and wrote the recent article in the Advocate. Heart felt thanks to Stephanie and to all of our donors who give so much!

Thanks to our wonderful volunteers from American Baptist Churches of Massachusetts TABCOM, we now have an herb spiral in our Dauphine Community Garden. They worked tirelessly to create this beautiful, environmentally-friendly structure from old bricks found on property. Neighbors will now be able to harvest basil, garlic, marjoram, parsley, sage, thyme, and nasturtiums (an edible flower) in addition to the rosemary, chives, and mint already present. We are very grateful for the many hands and hearts of our generous volunteers...a gift that keeps on giving.
