What if a hurricane and disastrous man-made flood ruined the economy of your city to the point where children throughout the city could not get access to nourishing food?

Economic and nutritional degradation now sounds like most cities in America, even without a hurricane. The severe and epic disaster that happened in Hurricane Katrina is a dire warning and wake-up call.

Filmmaker Robert Lee Grant who was living in New Orleans during Katrina had a simple thought in the aftermath: What can I do to help kids survive? "Nourishing the Kids of Katrina" is the story of organic gardening and permaculture applied directly to the place where kids are found even in the direst of times: the schoolyard.

Every city faces the economic and nutrition crisis; "Nourishing the Kids of Katrina" should be as inspiring to every city as it has been to New Orleans. View the trailer here: http://premium.naturalnews.tv/Nourishing_the_Kids.htm

New Orleans was the canary in the mine, warning us about food self-sufficiency

 "Nourishing the Kids of Katrina" follows the story of how chef Alice Waters' 'edible schoolyard' program is contributing to the rebirth of the New Orleans uptown, poor, black Green Charter School after its devastation from Hurricane Katrina floodwaters.
