Angela O’Callaghan assists a workshop participant with pruning techniques.

Join University of Nevada Cooperative Extension on Saturday, January 14, 2017 for a workshop on Gardening in Small Places: pruning from 8 a.m. to noon. The class, taught by Angela O’Callaghan, is designed to show you the what, when, where, why and how of pruning your landscape to keep your plants healthy and looking like you want them to.

This hands-on class gives you a chance to get a feel for pruning by letting you try your skills on our landscape before doing your own. If you want to get some hands on experience, please bring your pruners, gloves and eye protection. Please do not purchase pruners for this class. One of the topics is tools and we want to discuss what to purchase before you do. We have tools you can try out; however, bring your own gloves. Topics for the pruning workshop cover pruning fruit trees, ornamentals and desert plants. Homeowners and other interested parties are welcome to attend.

There is a $10 fee to cover materials. Class space is limited and pre-registration is required via

For more information about this workshop held at the Lifelong Learning Center (8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nev.), email or call Elaine Fagin at 702-257-5573.
