"Gardening is the purest of human pleasures." -- Francis Bacon

Community Gardens in Henderson

A community garden is, quite simply, any piece of land gardened by a group of people. Community gardens have many benefits - they beautify an area, produce healthy and nutritious food and bring neighbors together, which increases sense of community.

Last year, the Coventry HOA was awarded funds through the City's Neighborhood Enhancement Grant to help start a community garden in their common area. A number of residents participated and the group is looking forward to the next growing season.

If you have an idea for a community garden in your neighborhood or would like to learn more, contact Emily Lewis at (702) 267-2008 or emily.lewis@cityofhenderson.com.

Earlier this week, you should have received an invitation to our next Neighborhood Leadership Forum!

 

On Wednesday, October 27 at 7:30 a.m., Bob Cooper, Manager of Economic Development, will be discussing what the City is doing to spur economic growth in our community.  His presentation will include information on economic diversification, real estate strategies, job creation programs, as well as redevelopment in our downtown area of Water Street.

 

We will also recognize HOAs and NHAs that have positively impacted our community. If you know of a neighborhood group that has gone above and beyond, nominate them for an award.
