Growing fruit at home workshop

Posted 10/9/2014

Join University of Nevada Cooperative Extension on Saturday, November 15, for a one-day workshop on Gardening in Small Places: growing fruit at home. The class runs from 8 a.m. to noon. Can you grow fruit trees and berries in the desert? You bet! Figs, nectarines, peaches, apricots, pears, apples, strawberries, cantaloupe, grapes and blackberries are just a few of the fruits you can grow at home. The fruit varieties may be different than what you’re used to but the results can still be spectacular. Let Dr. Angela O’Callaghan instruct you on what plant attributes to look for when planning your home orchard. Homeowners and other interested parties are welcome to attend.

Class space is limited to 25 and pre-registration is required. There is a $25 fee per class which covers class materials.

To register for this class, held at the Lifelong Learning Center (8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nev.), email Elaine Fagin at or call 702-257-5573.
