Dig In on Earth Day with Slow Food North Louisiana

3 sites: LSUS, One University Pl; We Grow Together campus, 1613 Martha St; Highland Community Garden, 520 Herndon St

Shreveport, LA

Admission: Free

During WWII, Victory Gardens were planted across the country to enable individuals to take part in the war effort. "Dig on for victory!" the posters exhorted. "Sow the seeds of victory —plant and raise your own vegetables." Today, our war is against climate change and for food sovereignty. We're fighting for biodiversity, to love the earth and defend the future.

We talk a lot about the Ark of Taste, Slow Food's catalog of delicious foods facing extinction. Biodiversity is essential to a healthy environment and to defending our future against climate change. It's also delicious. But it can be hard to know how to get involved. So we will be giving away seeds from the Ark of Taste and will have garden experts on hand to share best practices for growing a healthy, biodiverse garden.
