downtown las vegas is going green. | veganconsultant.com | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it

Everyone taped their ideas for what they would love to see downtown. Shift Studios took video of the taping of the ideas. They will be posting a kickstarter video very soon to help raise funds for the event. We also held up signs that spells out ‘Build a Greener Block‘ which was a lot of fun. I’m still working on the exact details on how I am going to be involved with the event. On Tuesday I have another meeting with the health + wellness people of the project to see how we can incorporate conscious + compassionate lifestyle into the event. I’ll post more details soon. To get involved with the Greener Blocks project, check out their facebook page for updates. Exciting times ahead for downtown Las Vegas and beyond!
