The free demonstrations are open to the public.
Rose Garden — Mondays, Feb. 13 and 27 at 9 a.m.

Master Gardeners will also offer garden tours on each Friday in Feb. (3, 10, 17and 24) at 10 a.m. The tours are based on participants’ interests. For groups of 10 or more, call Ann Edmunds at 702-257-5587 at least one week prior.
Visitors should be prepared to be outdoors (sun protection, closed toe shoes, drinking water).
