Cooperative Extension (UNCE) will hold an information and registration session for the upcoming Fall 2011 Master Gardener Training on Wednesday, June 22 at 9 a.m. at the Lifelong Learning Center. The Master Gardener volunteer program is open to all adults who accept the training and volunteer commitments. Individuals do not need a horticulture background – only an interest in gardening and a desire to share with the community what they have learned.
The Master Gardener program teaches sustainable desert gardening practices, including proper plant selection and care, disease and pest management and water-efficient gardening.
Volunteer projects are on-going at Acacia Park, the Nathan Adelson Hospice and the Las Vegas Springs Preserve. Additional projects include the Doolittle and Lieburn Senior Center Community Gardens, the Master Gardener Orchard and Nellis AFB Environmental Grove.
