Please feel free to help us to establish the Las Vegas Clark County Seed Library:
The mission of the LVCCLD Seed Library is to promote gardening, heirloom seed/plant cultivation, and seed saving and sharing. We are hoping to accomplish this by putting on programming about gardening and seed saving/storing, and by lending out seeds to patrons with the understanding they will do their best to collect the seeds at harvest time to be returned to the seed library to be shared with others.

https://www.facebook.com/FoodHubClarkCountyNevada how our emergent Food Hub group's mission and vision fits in and grows and collaborates with organizations, entities and groups currently existing in Southern Nevada, such as the https://www.facebook.com/SouthernNevadaFoodCouncil and Community Garden Steering Committee [see for example
http://www.meetup.com/wholeway/events/113888252/ ] or even Vegas Green Jelly https://www.facebook.com/groups/vegasgreenjelly/
or Project Angel Faces, https://www.facebook.com/ProjectAngelFaces or Green Chips https://www.facebook.com/pages/Green-Chips/118426108193877
The short answer is that this Food Hub is intended to generate #collaborations and to empowering all of these existing organizations and many more that are sure to "crop up" over time. And we discussed the need to outreach all the organizations above and more.

Had a great meeting today with the Food Hub grouphttps://www.facebook.com/FoodHubClarkCountyNevada which is focusing on the interface between technology, urban food production, and intensive indoor gardening in Southern Nevada. This diverse group of go-getters is coordinating/collaborating closely with the Community Garden Steering Committee and the Southern NV Food Council
