University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners will offer a series of free classes at Acacia Park in conjunction with the Henderson Parks and Recreation Department. All classes will be taught by Master Gardener instructors and begin at 9 a.m. The line-up includes:

  • October 8, Composting—What is composting and how can it help with home landscapes?  Is it difficult?  Will it require a lot of time?  Does it take a special machine or tub?   Come and learn from the Master Gardeners all about composting and how it can benefit you and your landscape.
  • October 15, Container Gardening—How can plants survive the cold of winter and heat of summer?  It would be nice to have a garden, but there is so little space in your yard.  Master Gardeners will discuss how container gardening allows you to have a garden year round and the flexibility to change your garden to fit the seasons.  It will also tell you how to create and make a container garden.
  • October 29, Trick & Treats—Our Master Gardeners have a few trick (and treats) up their sleeves as they introduce kids to a few fun and festive plant projects as the Halloween Holiday approaches.
