Gardening Class offered at the Henderson Library by Master Gardeners in July

Posted 6/18/2013

Clark County Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners Howard Galin and Denise McConnell will be presenting gardening classes on July 13. Galin will present An Introduction to Desert Gardening at the Green Valley Library (2979 N. Green Valley Pkwy.) at Noon. McConnell will present Hummingbirds—Winged Jewels of the Desert at the Gibson Library (100 W. Lake Mead Pkwy.) at 2 p.m.

Registration is required for both classes. To register for Galin’s class call 702-207-4261 and for McConnell’s class, call 702-564-9261 #5 or you can register online.

The Master Gardener program has over 300 active Master Gardeners and is a University-trained community volunteer who shares knowledge and desert gardening skills via community projects. Master Gardeners Galin and Denise are university-trained in successfully growing plants in the harsh (hot, dry, windy) climate of the Mojave Desert. This is an environment unfamiliar to many newcomers. By teaching what to plant and how to properly care for their landscapes or gardens, the Master Gardeners save people money — on water, soil amendments, plant materials, etc.
