Project Sprout on NPR
Project Sprout, an exciting new initiative in the New Orleans area was recently on NPR. Project Sprout is a unique strategy for urban revitalization based on the premise that failure reveals opportunity. Project Sprout’s primary objective is to transform blighted properties into nodes of community redevelopment. Through the planting of bio-energy gardens that include plants like sunflowers, Project Sprout will:
1. Remediate soil
2. Yield a crop for bio-fuel production
3. Provide green-collar job training
4. Create hope in communities that suffer from the companion problems of blight and illegal dumping.
