Supporting Urban Agriculture

SUA is an urban farm in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans. We work to collectively strengthen local food security and access through sustainable growing and selling practices. 

 

We will not be doing the SUA CSA Boxes this coming growing season. After 5 years of dishing them out year round it was definately a hard decision. It was quite the journey. We will be focusing on resturants and the neighborhoods needs more this growing season. Much love and gratitude to all those who stcuk with us over the years we cannot express how much it meant to us to get your support. We will let y'all know where to find our produce once we start selling. 

 

Thinking Healthy ahead of Mardi Gras

Greetings from Team SUA! Letting our beloved box customers know that we will be off Feb. 5th ahead of Mardi Gras. Getting around the city is much more hectic and access to our supporting farmers tends to be scarce that week. Here's what we have projected for this coming Friday the 29th. Subject to change with bad weather of course. Heavy downpour of rain a day or two prior to harvest could affect the quality of the crop. This is true especially with delicate greens such as our mesclun mix. Thank you for your on going support!

Gardening is an exercise in optimism. Sometimes,
it is a triumph of hope over experience.
