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.
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
