023 Las Vegas Is Talking: Sharon Linsenbardt’s Las Vegas Farm Moves Forward To Expand But Asks For Community Support At Hearings
This is an important message about the future of Farmer Sharon Linsenbardt’s Las Vegas Farm.
The Farm has no options. It must either gain self-sufficiency to cover operational expenses or Las Vegas may lose one of its most cherished resources.
The good news is that expansion of The Farm, our last piece of old-world Vegas, could save the day, and transform the farm into a full five acre ‘destination’ site supporting a small cafe, events center and offering an unprecedented community center for education and information about life on the farm. Most importantly, the home of hundreds of animals that have found their life-long refuge here would be protected.
This planned expansion would create the income necessary to keep the farm financially sound for years to come.
What’s the bad news?
Should The Farm be required by various agencies and departments to make substantial and expensive changes to accommodate the planned expansion, these changes could destroy the fabric and character of The Farm and the associated costs could prove impossible to manage.
We hope you will take a few minutes to learn more about this important issue by listening to this interview with Farmer Sharon that was recorded at Theatre7 in Las Vegas on Tuesday, January 24, 2012.
You will hear Farmer Sharon discuss two critical public hearings and asking for your help by attending these events to demonstrate and offer your support for approving expansion plans while retaining the unique character of The Farm.
Please help The Farm and plan to attend both of these events.
