Project AngelFaces for a:

Pomegranate Harvest!

First Harvest Site:

7625 Desperado St.

Las Vegas, NV 89131

We will begin near the intersection of Farm and Tenaya at 8:30 am. The length of time spent at each property depends upon how many of you Angels can show up to the fun of helping us harvest! Many hands make light, and quick, work for all, so come on out, and bring your friends!

Rhonda K. will bring what you need to harvest and collect/distribute the harvests. This will include baskets, scissors/garden pruners, gloves, and ladders.

You need to bring protection from the elements: long sleeves, gloves if you have them, long pants and closed toed shoes, a bandanna, a hat, and water. Pomegranate trees are spiky, so please don’t skip these important protection from the elements!

Please take my phone number with you! 702.460.9261 Call me if you are unable to find us. We may just be in the backyard harvesting fruit!

Children over 10 are welcome to join us. Younger children are discouraged from this event for safety reasons.

Thank you for joining our harvesting fun, and for supporting the work of Project AngelFaces~! See you Saturday!


If you are unable to join Project AngelFaces in the harvest, please consider extending your participation and support of our work by spreading the word to your networks, neighbors, and coworkers. Please consider letting folks know that if they have a tree ready to harvest (right now it will be pomegranates or pistachios), Project AngelFaces can help them harvest and share their fruit. Please consider encouraging your friends or networks to volunteer with us to harvest.

Calling All Angels to build gardens this weekend! Events on Saturday in Henderson, and Sunday at New Vista Ranch in the far northwest! Please join us, and bring your friends!

 Henderson: On Saturday morning, 15 October, from 9 am- Noon, please join us at the Garden Club Henderson Garden from 9 am – Noon to help us organize a new shipment of donated materials with which to build more raised beds for this garden program. Please bring protection from the elements: Long pants, closed toed shoes, sun hat, sun glasses, sunscreen, handkerchief, water bottle, and gloves. We will be arranging the pallets and other donated materials into organized places, and working on the existing raised beds. Many hands make light work for all, and we need many hands to accomplish this task! This day’s work is simple, and much more than one or two people can do alone. Together, though, it will be quick and easy. Please join us! RSVP here: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=247435208641734&context=create                       for address and directions. 

Northwest Valley: New Vista Ranch~~ On Sunday, 16 October, from 9 am – 3 pm, in two hour shifts. Please join us for a shift of work in completing the expansion of the New Vista Garden of Project AngelFaces. 

Beginning shift is from 9 am- 11 am, during which time we will address the compost and the preparation of materials and stations for the following two shifts.

Second shift is from 11 am- 1 pm, during which time we will address the installation of the remainder of the irrigation lines, and prepare the holes for the planting of several donated trees.

Third shift will be from 1pm-3 pm, welcoming to the Host of Angels a new group of friends from Temple Beth Sholom. Third shift will move garden boxes into their appropriate places, level out the soil in the garden area, fill in the remaining trenches to be level, prepare/move the available soil into the appropriate boxes, plant trees, transplant succulents, and lay mulch down. RSVP here: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=172517589500817&context=create

We welcome your participation, and need many hands to make this light work for all! Shifts are only two hours, and you will be amazed at how much we can accomplish working together in sizable numbers. Please join us in supporting this Community Support Garden of New Vista Ranch. Your work here improves quality of life for all of us, especially the members of New Vista Community.  (www.NewVistaNV.org)

The magic of a garden is immeasurable. Please join us to experience some of this magic for yourselves. Please RSVP here, and contact Rhonda K. at rhondak@projectangelfaces.org with any questions. Wish list for this project, and this event, available upon request.
