Dear Friends of Vegas Roots,
Today is #GivingTuesday!
An antidote to mega shopping days like Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is a national day of charitable giving that celebrates the impact of nonprofits across the country and gives thanks to the communities that make their work possible.
We are quickly approaching our 6th birthday in March 2016 and what a journey and a joy it has been!
Starting the New Year with a little bit of seed money to continue to help us buy and grow seeds would be a tremendous help.
A great way to celebrate #GivingTuesday AND our upcoming birthday all at once!
Will you make a contribution right now to help us continue on with the work that we are doing?
Or you can become a member of our $5-to-Thrive Sustainer group and commit to donating JUST $5 a month on a recurring basis.
This will enable us to continue to have operating capital to cover the expenses of operating the garden, teaching our children, and growing your food.

With your help we’ve accomplished so much in our first five years…
- We have served over 800 visitors to The Garden each year
- Donated or sold an average of 60 lbs of fresh, pesticide-free produce weekly
- Taught over 85 families how to grow their own food through our Adopt-a-Plot program
- Through our 9-week health and wellness sessions over 120 people were taught strategies to overcome obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure by learning how to shop for, prepare and eat healthier foods
We are currently passing all of this information forward even earlier in life with our newest program called Lil’ Roots!
In our Children’s Garden Club we have 43 children, starting at age 3, that are growing their own food, eating from their lil’ garden and staying active and healthy!
We’ve done a lot! But we have more to do.
We are continuing to refine our model, measure our results, and grow our programs to reach even more people around the valley – and donations like yours will help us to achieve it.
This #GivingTuesday we are counting on you.
Will you make a contribution to help Vegas Roots Community Garden continue to grow?
and Team Vegas Roots
P.S. Please pass #GivingTuesday forward by sending this email to a few friends and family members and invite them to help us Grow more Food!
