Victory Garden

The Victory Garden, established in 2015, is a community garden located at the corner of Olivier and Pierce Streets, which provides fresh fruit and vegetables to neighborhood residents free of charge.

This space brings to life the vision of one of Townfolk's founders - a long time resident of LaPlace and cherished friend - Jillian Johnson, and is dedicated to her memory.

TownFolk Table

TownFolk Table is a free weekly produce market for residents of  the LaPlace neighborhood made possible by Whole Foods Market Whole Cities Grant.

TownFolk Table is open every Saturday at the Victory Garden beginning at 9:00AM while supplies last. Learn more about TownFolk Table by following the link here.
