Lower 9 Fruit Park Opening Celebration
Come celebrate our LOWER 9 FRUIT PARK in New Orleans
June 30, 9–11!
Join Pelican Bomb, A Studio in the Woods, Newcomb Art Museum of Tulane University, and the Lower 9th Ward Center for Sustainable Engagement and Development for a tree-dedication event with artists Fallen Fruit.
As part of “Fallen Fruit of New Orleans,” we facilitated the planting of 300 fruit trees across New Orleans, including fruit tree parks in the Lower 9th Ward and Gentilly. On June 30, 9–11 am, we welcome you to celebrate the project with the artists, David Burns and Austin Young. Reverend Charles Duplessis of Mount Nebo Bible Baptist Church gives a blessing, and following the ceremony, guests can tie-dye and take home bandanas featuring maps of New Orleans’ new public fruit trees.
Meet us at Fallen Fruit’s fruit tree park in the Lower 9th Ward near the intersection of Florida and Caffin Avenues in New Orleans.
This event is free and open to the public. RSVP and share with your friends on Facebook.
