Las Vegas puts a green twist on Better Block #ShiftVegas! #GreenerBlocks

See on Scoop.itYellow Boat Social Entrepreneurism

So many cities have taken the Better Block approach to urban revitalization and community building. From Memphis to Maryland we have seen variations on the Better Block. Now in Las Vegas we find the Greener Block. In a city not known for environmental awareness we find a group of doers that are out to prove Sin City does have a green hallow. We cant wait for the reports and pictures from the event.

WHEN: April 28 and 29
WHERE: 1000 block of South Main Street, downtown
WHAT: For two days, a block where half of the storefronts are vacant will be transformed with musical performances, an organic grocery, boutique store, community classroom, dog park, yoga classes and more.
COST: The pop-up shops will be selling food and goods. All of the events and admission are free.
