Master Gardeners to conduct a free class in November

University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners—for the 10th year--will offer a free class at Acacia Park during November. The class is offered in partnership with the City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department, and is published in “Henderson Happenings.” The class will be taught by a Cooperative Extension volunteer Master Gardener instructor and begins at 9 a.m.

November 7: Getting your yard ready for winter. Winter will be here soon. In the desert we sometimes experience colder winter winds and freezing temperatures that can harm our homes and landscapes. Now is the time to learn some simple techniques to protect your plants, trees, landscape and pipes. Master Gardener Jodi Starkey will offer great ideas on how to prevent winter injury and harm to your landscape.

Online, pre-registration is requested by the City of Henderson.

The Master Gardeners will have an “Ask a Master Gardener” table at the Park on the class day. Acacia Park is located at 50 Casa Del Fuego (Intersection of 215 and 515) in Henderson, Nev. Master Gardener volunteers are also available to answer questions via email or through the Home Gardening Help Line, 702-257-5555. The Help Line is staffed Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
