Seven years ago, Rhonda Killough made it her mission to help the youth, elderly and developmentally disabled population of Las Vegas. She shows them how to grow and share fresh fruits and vegetables. She started Project Angel Faces, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to cultivating her mission, one garden at a time.
“The children love it,” she said. “They come back to Garden Club again and again. Even when they age out of the program, they come back. ‘Ms. Rhonda K., I know I’m 13 now, but can I please come back to Garden Club?’ And, they start to teach the younger generation.”
Garden Club is just one of the four projects she is running through Project Angel Faces.
She also enlists local homeowners who have fruit trees and gardens. Their excess harvest is shared throughout the community through local social services and food banks. There are also community-specific gardens she helps cultivate, and that harvest goes directly back into the community.
