The study examines the ways in which various gardening projects in New Orleans exhibit different levels and scopes of political engagement, with a particular focus on how they manifest (sometimes in contradictory ways) in the projects’ missions and practices. By highlighting the ever-shifting social, economic, and political context of the post-disaster recovery, this article illustrates how urban gardening is inherently political, but cautions that the extent to which gardening can subvert social injustice in the city may be limited the emergence of urban gardening activities in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina
