McWilliams Elementary School, 1315 Hiawatha Road, opened a fruit and vegetable garden this month through a donation from Create A Change Now, a local nonprofit group that helps at-risk schools create edible gardens. The garden contains carrots, tomatoes, corn, zucchini, green beans, squash, radishes, grapes, strawberries, limes and peaches. Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman visited the school for the ribbon-cutting ceremony May 10. The garden was funded by UnitedHealthcare and Speedway Children's Charities. Lowe's and Star Nursery donated supplies. The garden will be maintained through donations from the Ferraro Group and Silvestri Insurance. For more information, visit createachangenow.org.
