Join University of Nevada Cooperative Extension on Saturday, September 19 for a workshop on Gardening in Small Places: using native and desert adapted plants in the landscape from 8 a.m. to noon. If you hear native and desert adapted plants and think of only cactus, you couldn’t be more wrong! There is a lot of beauty in the desert and not all of it is spiny. Professor M.L. Robinson will show and tell you about the plants you can use to have a beautiful and colorful desert garden all while saving money, energy and water! Homeowners and other interested parties are welcome to attend.

Class space is limited and pre-registration is required. There is a $25 fee which includes class materials.

To register for the workshop held at the Lifelong Learning Center (8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nev., I-215 and Windmill Lane), email Elaine Fagin or call 702-257-5573.

The next Gardening in Small Places workshop dates are October 3, Tree selection and care; and November 21, Growing fruit at home.
