Community gardens are thriving in Louisiana!  

I (Dr. Toni) was blessed to meet this beautiful couple over a year ago, while in Shreveport for a Community Development Meeting.  I am pleased to report that their hard work and dedication reflects true results that others can witness and be a part of.  

Congratulations Leia & Dayo and Family!
