Organic Gardening Workshop July 15.

Join University of Nevada Cooperative Extension on Saturday, July 15, for a one-day workshop on Gardening in Small Places: organic gardening. The class runs from 8 a.m. to noon.

There is a lot of talk about organic gardening, yet people have different ideas about what this means. Some think it means using no pesticides at all, while others think it means using non-GMO seeds. When in reality, organic gardening is so much more. If you are interested in finding out what organic gardening really means to your home garden, this is the class for you. Angela O’Callaghan, social horticulturist, will teach you the principles of organic gardening and how they apply to the home gardener. Homeowners and other interested parties are welcome to attend.

Class space is limited to 25 and pre-registration is required. There is a $10 fee per class which covers class materials.

To register for this class, held at the Lifelong Learning Center (8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nev.), email or call Elaine Fagin at 702-257-5573. Register online at

The next Gardening in Small Places workshop dates are Aug. 26, tree selection; and Sept. 9, using native plants.
