Reno classes set to focus on home-based horticulture

March 23, 2018 by  

Reno green thumbs and gardening newbies alike who would like to add to their horticultural skillset will soon have a chance to do so by taking part in a series of classes planned for the local area.

The University of Nevada Cooperative Extension has organized eight workshops that will cover a variety of garden-related topics. These range from growing fruit to weed control, and anyone who feels they will be helpful to them is welcome to attend.

Those who would like to broaden their horticultural ability are welcome to register for any one of the classes, or they can choose to sign up for all of them at once. The organizer noted that these are part of an initiative in the state to enhance the public’s ability to become more sustainable when it comes to producing and preserving their own food. The goal is to help gardeners increase their yields at harvest and have fun doing so. Local print shops will be able to design and print any handouts or other learning materials that can help the participants to get the most from an educational event such as these.

The series of workshops will be taking place at the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension throughout the month of April. It can be found at 4955 Energy Way in Reno. More information can be obtained by contacting the planners through the office’s website.
