Both Terranova’s and Cafe Degas participated in the November 4, 2017 tree planting organized and sponsored by the group Sustaining Our Urban Landscape (SOUL) founded by Susannah Burley. Faubourg St. John neighbors at 2816 Grand Route Saint John, 2934 Grand Route Saint John, and 2832 Ponce de Leon also received free trees.
What is SOUL?
“It’s an acronym for Sustaining Our Urban Landscape, and the idea is to work neighborhood by neighborhood to help residents form a strategic plan to reduce dramatically the amount of stormwater that goes into catch basins and the drainage system,” said Burley, who also holds a master’s degree in landscape architecture from LSU.

Everyone knows money doesn’t grow on trees nor does it grow for trees. If you would like to donate to help put more trees in the neighborhood, please contact Susannah Burley at: (504) 616-6888 or you can donate to SOUL online at the Trust for Conservation Innovation’s website.
