The Parish is partnering with Keep Terrebonne Beautiful and the Pointe au Chien Indian Tribe to develop a community garden in Montegut. Keep Terrebonne Beautiful was awarded a grant to provide a community garden to Terrebonne Parish. The proposed site is on flooded properties bought by the Parish. This is a cooperative effort to plant fruit trees and vegetables. The Pointe au Chien tribe is generously providing maintenance and insurance.
This is an ongoing effort to use the buyout properties in a manner that remains in compliance with FEMA rules, but also provides public benefits. These include saving Parish funds that would otherwise have had to continue to maintain the property.
Come to a neighborhood meeting to see the draft mapping for the fruit trees, help design the vegetable garden, learn about volunteer options, or to ask questions.
