The Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada (BGCSNV) are growing their Bright Futures Farm and Gardens program to its third location at the John C. Kish Clubhouse in Henderson.
Together with participating partners Barclaycard US, Garden Farms, Whole Foods and Green Our Planet, BGCSNV held a Grand Opening of the garden on September 3, 2015.
The Boys & Girls Clubs celebrated the debut of their third teaching garden program with the children and Barcalycard volunteer’s planting their first seeds of pumpkin, carrots, radishes and more. Thanks to generous partners, including a $15,000 donation by Barclaycard US, BGCSNV will impact approximately 400 youth at the John C. Kish Clubhouse through this garden program set to teach healthy lifestyles, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship skills to underserved youth in the area.
