Shreveport Green: M.L.K. Community Garden Improvement Project with Lowe’s

September 22

The Lowe’s Hometowns program has committed to completing improvement projects in 100 hometowns across the country, and one of the projects selected was submitted by Keep Louisiana Beautiful Community Affiliate, Shreveport Green. Shreveport Green received $25,000 for their M.L.K. Community Garden project, involving the construction of a pergola, fencing, the painting of a large storage container, and the improvement of six vegetable beds.

 

On September 22, Lowe’s employees will join Shreveport Green volunteers to complete the project at the corner of Dr. Martin Luther King Drive and Legardy Street in the M.L.K. neighborhood. The once abandoned 1/2 acre lot was purchased by Caddo Parish, and for the past three years, Shreveport Green has been utilizing the space to develop a community garden and meeting place.
