Dear Friend and Supporter of Vegas Roots,
Fall brings to The Garden the time to turn the soil and rejuvenate the earth.
It is also the time that Vegas Roots Community Garden turns to our friends in the community for their continued support to ensure another planting and program season for the coming year.
While we continue to keep our operating expenses low, we depend on your generosity to maintain the wonderful programs and special events in The Garden.
In the past year, individual donations made up 67% of our annual operating budget.
Your continued support allows us to sustain operation of The Garden and continue these wonderful programs:
- Adopt a plot — Individuals and organizations can lease a 50 square foot raised growing bed (plot) and grow your own delicious, nutritious and organic veggies year round!
- Lil’ Roots Garden Club for kids – Our first-ever gardening and cooking club for kids ages 4 to 12. Includes growing plot and monthly classroom lessons.
- Vegas SOUP — Support, Organize & Unite People. This innovative micro-grant program helps local citizens directly support community programs whose aim is to contribute to the vitality of Las Vegas.
- Facilitating School Trips — Sharing the garden experience with school children can shape their attitude towards healthy eating for their lifetime. This program introduces children to the world of gardening with fun planting activities and games.
