It's that time again! We will be marching for the forth time for food sovereignty, for GMO labeling and to end the cronyism caused by our agriculture industry.
We will be starting the morning at the Downtown 3rd Farmers' Market with free coffee courtesy of Owen Carver and free smoothie samples courtesy of Grass Roots Juice Bar. We will have poster makings and previews of the booths for the GROW YOUR OWN Festival. We will then be meeting at Beauty Bar Las Vegas at 10:15 am, with a rally to start at 10:30am. At 11 we will march from Fremont East down to the Federal Courthouse Building, then through the Fremont Street Experience (who will be playing revolutionary songs for us on their speakers) then back to the Downtown 3rd Farmers' Market for the Grow Your Own Festival.
A list of the amazing businesses and CSAs that will be there will be released closer to the march. We are going to be recruiting volunteers to help at the school gardens this summer and celebrating all the outdoor classrooms! We will have Olmeca performing for the first half of the fest, and RnR Band playing for the second half.
Just imagine our sea of red marching through the Fremont Street Experience, then invite your friends to join.
Guest Speakers will include Nick Brannigan from Health Conspiracy Radio, Juliana Urtubey Otálora from Crestwood Elementary Outdoor Classroom Garden, Chef Paco from El Dorado Cantina, Shane Stuart from Grass Roots Juice Bar and John Kohler from Youtube gardening fame.

WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! If you are willing to help us collect items for the march, pass out flyers, donate, or work tabling or movie events, please join this group and learn how to get involved.
We will also be posting a list of things we are asking our supporters to donate directly to the Green Our Planet school gardening program. These items will go to benefit the 64 school gardens under their care.
