Thank you for your comments on the Vertical Farm and makes perfect sense.
My readers will benefit as much as I did, So I am posting it. Please Enjoy
Read the article and thought it was very good. The thing that struck me was the local angle of what this type of farm could mean to the quality of food here in Las Vegas.
Typically in the last 10 years the quality of food in Las Vegas has been outstanding in the casino’s and the restaurants. For locals this isn’t the case. Local groceries get the majority of their produce from California. Having grown up in the mid-west it becomes clear very quickly that produce grown in California is substandard. One of our biggest complaints in living here is the size, availability, and quality of the produce. I actually look forward to going home to get something to eat!
When ever a new project is projected for this city you have to take it with a grain of salt. You just never really know if it will happen or not. With this project it would be nice to see some of this wonderful produce hit the local shelves, and not just the casinos. And of course, its new and different and Las Vegas will embrace it and make a profit, its what Las Vegas does best!
