Are you involved in a seed library?
We are interested in opening one.
Clark County, Nevada Community Gardening Steering Committee; FoodHub Las Vegas; Las Vegas Clark County Seed Library
June 20, 1956

 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.

More details are found at https://www.facebook.com/FoodHubClarkCountyNevada

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.

Green Chips shared a page: Food Hub Strategists for Clark County.
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
https://www.facebook.com/SouthernNevadaFoodCouncil. Great things in store for sure and we are excited that the Green Chips Community Web Portal will be a helpful springboard for all these great efforts!

Posted by David King on July 13, 2014 at 10:41pm 0 Comments

It dawned on me this morning that I had missed one of the most important points that could have appeared in the first post on GMOs.  

Often we hear supporters of GMOs saying things like "What we are doing is no different than what mankind has been doing since the beginning of agriculture."  There is no difference between GMOs and simply hybridizing that anyone has done in the past."

Some Salient Facts On GMO's; Part II, The Human Gut and GMOs
