Gardening Classes offered by Master Gardener Helen Brown
Clark County Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Helen Brown will be presenting two separate gardening classes in April. On April 20, join Brown for an informational class on “Growing Cucumbers and Squash” at the Master Gardener Orchard located at 4600 Horse Road, NLV. On April 23, Brown will be at the Family Resource Center at UMC (1120 Shadow Lane) presenting “Planting Vine Crops” at 10 a.m. Both classes are open to the public; however, you must pre-register for the UMC class.
Brown will cover when to plant, how to pollinate and what to do so you will not have the dreaded squash bug in your garden. Brown will also distribute cucumber information.
To reserve a space at UMC, contact Amy Runge at the Family Resource Center at 702-383-2229. For the Orchard class, just show up at 9 a.m. A $5 donation is requested for the Orchard class.
