Farming the Ninth. Click image to enlarge.
Returning the vacant land of the northern Lower Ninth to productive use was a major focus of the CSS. A mix of backyard planting, community gardening and commercial farming are all ways to use flood-prone land that would be risky to resettle densely. In our proposal, Galvez Street, shown here, would accommodate both small farm cottages to the south and larger commercial operations to the north.
