Farming in southern Nevada? It's happening just northeast of Las Vegas.
Here’s something you don’t see in Southern Nevada every day: Three young adults, 19 to 20 years old, working in the blistering June sun, up to their ankles in dirt, clearing weeds from a plot of eggplant. They weren’t being paid, and no, it wasn’t part of a sentence, criminal or otherwise. These labors were bearing fruit strictly by the choice of the laborers.
