Learn the secrets of high desert gardening

University of Nevada Cooperative Extension is offering eight “Grow Your Own, Nevada!” classes statewide to help Nevadans who want to get on a path to more sustainable, local, healthy living by growing and preserving more of their own food.

“Anyone can become a better gardener by attending these classes,” Cooperative Extension Horticulture Specialist Heidi Kratsch said. “From the beginner to the advanced gardener, everyone can benefit from a Grow Your Own, Nevada! class.”

The workshops will provide gardeners and those interested in growing healthy foods with a “back-to-the-basics” guide to great harvests in Nevada.

Reduced registration is available for Washoe County K-12 teachers and Washoe County Master Gardener Volunteers attending in Reno. Teachers: email a copy of your school ID to Ashley Andrews at andrewsa@unce.unr.edu to receive your promotional code. Master Gardeners: see the home page news section of the volunteer management system to receive your promotional code.
