If you have recently attended a Front Yard Initiative workshop, or are in the process of completing your FYI project, we understand that there may be delays. We aim to be as responsive as possible with adjusting project timelines and other expectations.

Please join our FYI Facebook group to exchange gardening tips, helpful information, plants, and more. 


StayLocal is working with partners within New Orleans and across the U.S. to advocate for local and federal policy to support small businesses during the COVID-19 crisis.  Read the Federal Small Business Plan we are endorsing here.
