About the Grow Your Own, Nevada! Instructors

Class instructors are UNCE experts that are experienced gardeners. Some are graduates of Master Gardeners of Nevada. The Master Gardeners program was started in 1972 in Washington state as a response to ever increasing requests from home gardeners for information about growing fruits, vegetables, and landscape plants in their region. Master Gardeners are volunteers that give UNCE the ability to provide the public with current and accurate information while providing "participants a sense of community spirit, accomplishment and intellectual stimulation." You can contact the Master Gardener Program in Washoe County by phone at (775) 784-4848.
