While you are writing up your materials, putting together your slides and/or Powerpoint presentation for possible funders and future stakeholders in your project, you might want to do a few of these things:
1) Go to the "Gardening with Seniors and the Disabled" links on the ACGA website:
http://www.communitygarden.org/links/index.html#seniors and get in touch through these links or at LSU or Tulane with Louisiana based Horticultural therapy practitioners. 
2) This old link from the North West Louisiana gardeners has a pair of likely suspects.
3) From the Rothbert book listings in the ACGA list, you can get the address of the Chicago Botanical Gardens amazing enabled garden - some pictures from them might be worth a thousand words.
4) The last time I looked, the ACGA didn't seem to have any member gardens in Louisiana, which seems a darn shame. Please consider this e-mail your formal invitation to join once you've gotten your garden set up. http://www.communitygarden.org/about/membership.html
Love to join you for your focus group. Temperatures in NYC are in the teens and I'm dying for some good cajun food and music...what a thought! Crumbs from Caesar's table.
Best wishes,

Dear members,  I would like to invite anyone interested in the New Orleans area to a focus group we will be holding to explore local interest and elicit support for a low income, elderly and disabled community garden in the Algiers area of New Orleans.  Please see the invitation below for further details.
The Wild Iris Garden Club
3601 Texas Drive Apt. 217 B
New Orleans, LA  70114
(504) 364-0225
January 21, 2003
Subject: Focus Group

Dear Community Garden List:
The Wild Iris Garden Club (TWIG) is a newly formed garden club with a unique membership and goals.
At this time TWIG is composed of low income elderly and disabled individuals who desire to create an
organic garden that is barrier free and fully enabled so that anyone, regardless of physical or emotional
challenges, may participate in and enjoy.
It is our stated purpose for the community garden to foster a charitable outlook on life within our own
community, neighborhood and the community at large.  It is our intention that the community garden be a
self-sufficient and sustainable enterprise growing vegetables, herbs and cut flowers for local markets,
restaurants and florists.  The community garden will be a place of learning, healing, therapy and
beautification for the immediate community, as well as a place of education, training and rehabilitation for
local schools, 4-H groups, Scouts, and other individuals or groups that would benefit from such a garden.
At this time we are developing a focus group to determine the needs and support of the community.  We
would like for you or your representative to attend a focus group meeting scheduled for January 28, 2003
from 1:30-3:30 PM at the Algiers Regional Library, 3014 Holiday Drive.  The meeting will be hosted by
Louisiana Representative Melinda Schwegmann.  There will be presentations by Connie Shepherd,
Licensed Horticulturist; Lekoma Akate, Master Gardener; Landscape Architect and City Planner, Ginger
Fortson of the LSU AgCenter; Craig Wadsworth, Rehabilitation Engineer and Ed Barras of Louisiana
Rehabilitation Services.
Please RSVP to 364-0225 by January 22, 2003 (or just show up).
Wm. Jeffery Pratt
