Free gardening classes at Acacia Park
Master Gardeners conduct classes in April
University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners—for the 10th year--will offer a series of free classes at Acacia Park in April. Classes are offered in partnership with the City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department, and are published in “Henderson Happenings.” All classes will be taught by Cooperative Extension volunteer Master Gardener instructors and begin at 9 a.m.
April 4: Gardening with Physical Limitations. Gardening is a healthy habit for all ages but sometimes a physical condition can make it difficult. A Cooperative Extension Master Gardener will give you tips on modifying equipment/clothing and discuss techniques to prevent injury.
April 11: Beautiful Native Landscape Design. Want to transform your yard into a haven for butterflies, birds and other wildlife? Using native plants that are likely to survive will make your landscape less costly as well as beautiful. A Cooperative Extension Master Gardener will tell you what plants work and how to use them in your yard.
April 18: Growing Trees. Trees give structure to your landscape, provide shade and wildlife habitat, and they may also provide edible fruit. Join a Cooperative Extension Master Gardener to discuss which trees are recommended for our area, when to plant, irrigation, fertilization, pruning and problems.
April 25: Growing Herbs in Containers. Herbs are easy to grow and have many uses...cooking, crafts, gifts. Even if you live in a small space, you can have an herb garden by using plant pots.
Online, pre-registration is requested by the City of Henderson.
The Master Gardeners will have an “Ask a Master Gardener” table at the Park on class days. Acacia Park is located at 50 Casa Del Fuego (Intersection of 215 and 515) in Henderson, Nev. Master Gardener volunteers are also available to answer questions through the Home Gardening Help Line, 702-257-5555. The Help Line is staffed Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
