 build LV community Need $5,000 for city permits, buy construction materials, etc. details 

Who We Are and What We're Doing:

Build a Greener Block (BABG) is a community of Las Vegans looking to take over an empty block in downtown Las Vegas on April 28th and 29th.  For this one weekend we’re transforming the block into a living community.  Instead of empty stores there will be a restaurant offering healthy food, a boutique, a café, flower shop.  We will have a dog park and fitness classes from yoga to an obstacle course for kids.  The streets will be lined with food stands and local farmers selling their vegetables.  There will be classes for all the family – from gardening and canning to learning how to make your own instrument.  And plenty of entertainment – bands street performers, comedians – you name it.  And we want to do it all in the most sustainable way possible– we will use solar power, biodegradable utensils.  Everything will be recycled and upcycled.  Why?  Because we want to show that when all of us come together as a community we can change our neighborhoods.  We can change our towns. We can change our cities.  We want to show that when we join our skills, talents, experiences and resources together we can create the kind of Las Vegas we all want to live in.  But we need your help to build a greener block here in Las Vegas. Donate a few dollars and join us  April 28 and 29 for all the fun.

What We Need & What You Get

We need $5,000 to pay for city permits, to buy construction materials and other items not donated.  

  • For $10 a thank you on our donor page and a hi-5
  • For $25 a CD from the band Earth Rising as featured in the video
  • For $50 a handcrafted bracelet made with sustainable materials from our volunteers at Re(up)cycling workshops 
  • For $100 a front page mention on our website
  • For $500 honorable mention on our wall of fame at the event.


Whatever funds we raise will go to pay for permits first and then toward remaining expenses after.

The Impact

Build A Greener Block puts the power in the hands of the the community to create neighborhoods representative of the people who live there.  And BAGB will show this can be done sustainably and green.  Additionally, local startups get a chance to test the market in the communities they want to serve – creating jobs and green businesses.       

Other Ways You Can Help

We need 650 people to donate $10 but if you can't donate then come out to volunteer and tell everyone you know to attend the event and go online to donate!
