MISSION | Sustaining Our Urban Landscape, SOUL, is dedicated to driving a resilient and equitable New Orleans through improving its water and food systems.


WATER SYSTEMS | SOUL is dedicated to mitigating New Orleans’ stormwater problems through replanting our urban forest and implementing green infrastructure. Just as grey infrastructure, such as canals and bridges, only function well when implemented as a large scale system, green infrastructure, including trees, only works properly when executed as a large scale system.

In working toward this goal, SOUL is partnering closely with community based organizations in outfitting neighborhoods with urban forests and green infrastructure.

Stay tuned for updates! Exciting progress is in the works.


FOOD SYSTEMS | Improving our local food system means that more people will have access to fresh healthy food, more jobs will be created, and more urban greenspace will be populated by beautiful and productive urban farms.
