Grow Dat Youth Farm, Broad Community Connections, Neighborland.org, and the Tulane Community Health Center are excited to host a Pop-Up Farmers Market this Saturday, June 16 featuring Grow-Dat’s delicious produce. The market will be hosted at Tulane University’s brand-spanking-new Ruth Fertel Community Health Center. There will be free watermelon juice, cooking demonstrations, and plenty of shade. Come on out to Broad Street and make some groceries!
The Ruth U Fertel / Tulane Community Health Center will be dedicated this Thursday at 1:00 at the old flagship Ruth’s Chris on the corner of Orleans and North Broad.
The new community health and healing center at the corner of N. Broad and Orleans Avenue represents the transformation of a Katrina-battered site into a community centerpiece. The facility will offer medical care and community services to the neighborhood and is a living tribute to the memory of two caring and compassionate women, Ruth Fertel and Mary Jane Brinton.
