For more information on the events listed, please call the Home Gardening Help Line at 257-5555 or stop by Cooperative Extension’s Lifelong Learning Center and Demonstration Gardens located at 8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, NV 89123 (Windmill exit off the 215). Office hours are Monday - Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. or visit the blog at: http://www.unce.unr.edu/blogs/southernarea/

Since 1992, over 1,000 community members in the Las Vegas area have taken the comprehensive Master Gardener horticulture training course with the understanding that they are not to keep this information to themselves — that they will become the University’s unpaid ambassadors and share the science of good desert gardening with others.

University of Nevada Cooperative Extension is an outreach arm of the University that extends unbiased, research-based knowledge from the University—and other land-grant universities—to local communities. Educational programs are developed based on local needs, sometimes in partnership with other agencies and volunteers.
