VFT: Gilcrease Orchard: Farming in Las Vegas
Tune in virtually as we meet up with Mark at Gilcrease Orchards! On the outskirts of Las Vegas, the Gilcrease Family Farm has been providing for the community for over 90 years! The unique geology where the farm sits upon, has natural artesian springs that created a desert oasis for crops, fruit trees, and produce to grow. Over the family’s 90-year history in the Valley, Gilcrease Orchard has become a staple in teaching the community about faming and has brought the enjoyment to many by opening 100 acres devoted to the community to come harvest vegetables, fruit, and the most popular, pumpkins! Tune in live from the farm and a Q&A about farming in Las Vegas.
