Free Classes about Gardening in Nevada It may be tough to grow a vegetable garden and other plants in northern Nevada, but you can do it 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, 2024. The classes are taught by UNCE horticulturists and experts, and Cooperative Extension's certified Master Gardener volunteers. For more information, call UNCE at (775) 784-4848. Persons needing special accommodations or assistance must call or notify Rachel McClure at (775) 336-0274 or at least three days prior to the scheduled class.

These classes are free, but online registration is required. Please consider bring a canned food item for donation to the Food Bank of Northern Nevada.
