La Voce News Magazine Features Kerry Clasby, California Family Farms,  The Intuitive Forager

For all you Las Vegas residents make sure to pick up a copy of the March issue of La Voce News Magazine that should be on the street on March 1, 2011.

Kerry is featured in the March 2011 issue of La Voce and we’re sure all of us will want to read about this amazing woman. 

My guess is perhaps the only person who won’t have time to read it is Kerry herself.  Since she drives 1,500 miles a week searching out and bringing back to Vegas the best of the best fresh fruits and vegetables, we may have to read it her on a cell phone call while she’s on the homeward leg of her weekly commute.

Kerry, thanks for being a part of our Las Vegas Sustainalbe Food community and doing what you do.

We’re informed that Bet On The Farm Farmers Market will remain closed Thursday, February 24, 2011.

We’ll keep you updated when we have anything new to report.
