Vegetable Gardening in Small Spaces
Join University of Nevada Cooperative Extension (UNCE) on Saturday, August 29, 2009, for a one-day, two-class series on vegetable gardening in small spaces. The beginning class runs from 8 a.m. to Noon and the advanced class runs from 1-5 p.m. The classes, taught by Dr. Angela O’Callaghan, are designed to provide the gardener with topics such as types of containers to use, composting, basics of fertilization, warm vs. cool crops, biennials and perennials, pest management, extending the growing season, and more. Homeowners and other interested parties are welcome to attend.
Class space is limited and pre-registration is required. There is a $15 fee and includes class materials and one plant. Additional plants can be purchased at class for $2 per plant.
