Free Classes about Gardening in Nevada It may be tough to grow a vegetable garden and other plants in northern Nevada, but it's not impossible - if you know how. Thanks to the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension (UNCE) and Washoe County Regional Parks and Open Space, you can learn about how to do it through a series of free classes titled "Gardening in Nevada: The Bartley Ranch Series."

All classes are on Tuesday evenings from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Bartley Ranch Regional Park, 6000 Bartley Ranch Road in Reno. They will be every Tuesday evening during February and March, 2020. The classes are taught by UNCE horticulturists and experts, local business owners and Cooperative Extension's certified Master Gardener volunteers. For more information, call UNCE at (775) 784-4848. People needing special accommodations or assistance should call at least three days prior to the class(es) they wish to attend.

2021 Update: The 2021 class series will be offered remotely via Zoom only. To sign up, visit the "Gardening in Nevada: The Bartley Ranch Series" website and click on the class date(s) of interest. Classes start at 5:30 p.m.
