Marble Manor Garden Project


Commissioner Dishonne Muhammad

Southern Nevada Regional Housing Authority

(702) 508-8718

The two new plots for the "Eat to Live Garden Project", at Marble Manor, will be located at 908 & 916 McWilliams. This street is very near MLK Blvd., and Bonanza, in the Marble Manor Public Housing Development. Tentatively, we would like to begin digging, the week of March 30th so that we may get our spring seeds in he ground.

We will need about 15 to 20 boy scouts, to dig out grass, in order to replace it with clean, healthy soil, for our forthcoming healthy crops! With this amount of helping hands, this shouldn't take more than 2-3 hours. We are very excited about this project, and so is the City of Las Vegas! Please let me know if your organization will be able to assist.
