With our ying yang weather, our citrus orchards are producing their fragrant flowers and the butterflies and honey bees are taking full advantage of the nectar in our Dauphine Community Garden. Meanwhile, across the neighborhood in our Butterfly Island on our Florida lots, the monarch butterfly caterpillar devours milkweed.

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!
