Adopt a Plot Program
Benefits of a Community Garden
Adults and children who take part in a community garden eat healthier diets than do non-gardening people, according to Michelle Obama’s “Lets Move Campaign”.
We feel quite strongly that involvement and participation in our community garden will, in turn, help to lower the childhood obesity rate here in Las Vegas.
So, make sure to bring your kids when you visit! We have a great playground for them, as well.
Also, it is a scientifically documented fact that exposure to green spaces reduces stress and increases a sense of wellness and belonging.
These are only a few of the many ways in which Vegas Roots Community Garden is a catalyst for positive change.
You might not think so, but we grow crops year-round here at Vegas Roots Community Garden.
Yes, despite the harsh desert climate, our plots produce a remarkable variety and quantity of delicious edibles throughout the year.
Plot sizes are 50 square feet, which is just the right size for most folks. Not too big, but not too small. You’ll be surprised just how much produce can grow in a 5 x 10 foot plot!
Benefits To You
Adopt a garden plot to harvest fresh, organic produce for yourself, family, or business. This is perfect for families who desire to not only grow their own organic produce, but to teach their children how fun and easy it is.
- Get some sun and fresh air in a peaceful, green space
- Grow your choice of healthy, organic produce to nourish yourself and your family
- Involve & educate your children in how food is grown and where it really comes from
- Get grounded to the Earth by putting your hands in the soil and tending your crops
- Enjoy the pleasure of knowing where your produce came from and that YOU grew it!
All this for only $500 per year to support this wonderful project! You can also pay $125 quarterly, if you’d prefer.
And of course, this fee helps us run the Garden and our programs, as well as pay our utility bills. The water bill alone is quite large, despite our ongoing conservation efforts.
