If you aren’t able to make it to Garden Club, please join us at the Garden Club Henderson site at 1110 E. Warm Springs Rd. Henderson, NV 89015 as we work to disassemble the new crates we were donated from Repurpose America so we can remake them into raised beds for our gardens!

We will provide many of the tools you need, but if you have tools you can bring, we need power drills, power saws, hammers, and nail pullers for this work. Your help and support are vital to our success, so come on out and lend a hand, Angels! This is a short, sweet event, and we hope you will join us.

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.

Thank you for your willingness to Get Involved with Project AngelFaces! We Cultivate Hope for the Future!
