Sun Water and Dirt – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans
In business, and other organizations, we hear about “mission drift.” That’s a condition where the organization loses track of what it set out to accomplish. The way to re-focus is to get back to basics.
That’s what we’re doing today on Out to Lunch. We’re talking about three very basic elements – sunshine, water, and dirt.
And we’re looking at how we can harness these 3 elements to re-focus us on one of our missions as a city that we seem to have drifted away from – resurrecting the 9th Ward.

Marianne Cufone is an expert on urban and suburban farming, Executive Director of Recirculating Farms and Growing Local NOLA.
Becca Margolis has an Okra farm – in the 9th Ward, Okra Foods.
What would a re-focus on sunshine, water, and dirt look like in New Orleans? Could a back to basics agricultural revolution revive the Lower 9th Ward?
