Post Hurricane Katrina the city of New Orleans was in a
(to put it lightly) rebuilding phase. As we literally put our lives back together, the Hollygrove Market and Farm was established. It afforded Hollygrove residents a community garden where we could use sustainable techniques to grow fruit and vegetables for your personal consumption. The lessons learned at the Hollygrove Market and Farm have evolved into our company Know Dat Grow Dat. We are urban growers of seasonal fruit and vegetables, as well as our prized micro greens. As a retired pharmacist, I know how important good nutrition enhances disease prevention. Micro greens are not only power packed with essential vitamins and minerals. The taste profiles are phenomenal. We have a deep appreciation for good tasting food in New Orleans. Know Dat Grow Dat is proud to continue that tradition.
