|Mission||History||Present and Future|
|Green Light New Orleans invests energy in people by assisting New Orleans residents in person, one household at a time.

We connect New Orleans residents to relevant, local opportunities and encourage individual actions so that everyone can benefit from a vibrant, resilient, and sustainable community.||Swiss native Andreas Hoffmann founded Green Light New Orleans in 2006 to assist in the sustainable rebuilding of New Orleans and at the same time offset the pollution of his touring band.

Green Light’s free Backyard Vegetable Garden program educates residents on how to start growing their own food, and provides the materials to start a vegetable garden.
