Welcome to Historic Green

Another Successful Spring Greening Event for 2018!

The 2018 Spring Greening event by Historic Green has come to its successful conclusion. The weather was very cooperative and the reception by the Lower 9th Ward and NOLA community was as warm and positive as always. We had fewer volunteers this time but managed to get many worthwhile projects completed. Congrats and thank you to everyone who helped.

After Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, LA (NOLA) in 2005 a consensus was formed to help rebuild this historic city as green (sustainable) as possible. It soon became evident that municipal and large commercial buildings were being rebuilt but the beautiful and unique homes from submerged neighborhoods were not given the same attention.

Historic Green was then formed for local neighborhoods, especially the Lower 9th Ward, to get help from design and preservation experts plus volunteers from colleges and universities. It was determined that annual spring breaks were the best time slots to get help from student volunteers and these events are named “Spring Greening” events.

2018 is gearing up to see another successful Spring Greening event organized and delivered. Please click on the “2018 Spring Greening Registration” link at the top of this page for the latest information.
