Become a Member!



Patio Planters sponsors a number of fun social events and projects each year, as well as monthly meetings (except June and December), and is an excellent and most enjoyable way for a French Quarter resident to get to know his or her neighbors. 

Residents of the Vieux Carre, and non-resident owners of property in the Vieux Carre may apply for membership in Patio Planters. We also have a "friends" category for those residing outside of the Vieux Carre, who would like to participate as non-voting members. 

Potential members can join by completing our simple application form including recommendations by two current Patio Planters members, and send it with their dues to Patio Planters, 1000 Bourbon Street #270, New Orleans, LA 70116. Applications can also be given to any member. Membership applications are considered and approved or by the organization's board at its monthly meeting. Dues are $35 per individual or $60 per household. No applicant becomes a member without the approval of the board.

Current members can renew and pay online or download the renewal form and pay by mail each December, and if renewing by mail return the renewal form with their dues to:

Patio Planters
1000 Bourbon Street, Box 270 
New Orleans, LA 70116
