Carols Garden

Thank you Carol and Ronda for letting us plant your beautiful vegetables! And letting us be a part of your family today! We had so much fun working and learning how to self grow plants in a sustainable and beneficial way. Glad we got the chance to help out Carol today! He is so passionate about growing his own crops it’s inspiring!

Swamp Tour

Today Dayana, Philip, and I learned, about the impacts of sea/water level rise and the decrease in land mass. Water rise in Louisiana is a serious issue that is at an incline everyday. The regulation in Louisiana is not enforced like it should be which puts challenges on the wetlands of the state. Wetlands are a beautiful, historical and cultural part of Louisiana. So loosing the magnificent wetlands would be heartbreaking to their community. Since Louisiana, is prone to hurricanes it’s very important that they find ways to protect themselves from the storms. Wetlands are a barrier against the hurricanes and help to prevent them from being as powerful as they can be. They also contain many habitats for many species that need wetlands to survive. We need to start looking at the decrease in wetlands due to water level rise as a real issue and we should all be doing our parts in climate change so we can stop water level rise.

Woodlands Work

I enjoyed the beautiful view of the woodlands swaps and beautiful forest today! I love that we can help regulate and enforce the park so we can help restore the land that was destroyed from Katrina!

The French Quarter

The beautiful Royal Street. Magnificent building and wonderful people. There is always something to do in this town, and the town never sleeps. There was a wedding parade down the street. Bands playing all over. I would love to stay here longer. I’m hooked!

New Orleans

I’m super excited for my week in New Orleans! One thing I am super interested in learning about this week is the music of the New Orleans culture! Looking forward to going to Jazz clubs and meeting the people of New Orleans!!
