From the Bottom to the Top

From the Bottom to the Top community garden started in 2009 as part of the McKinley High Summer Experience Program, with support from LSU and the LSU Ag Center.  Youth from that program, the White family, and Tyreese McGee were instrumental in starting this garden.  The land for the garden was donated by the Islamic Complex at 740 East Washington.  Garden advocates for this site include Stephanie Elwood, Aldreamer Smith, Imam Fahmee Sabree, and Marguerite Green.
