Join University of Nevada Cooperative Extension on Saturday, Sept. 9 for a workshop on Gardening in Small Places: using native and desert adapted plants in the landscape from 8 a.m. to noon.

How about using plants that will do well in our soil, will do well with our weather and do well with our water? You can have a lush landscape while saving, energy, water and money! I’m talking about native and desert adapted plants, of course. When you think of native desert plants, do only cacti come to mind? Well, there are so many more native and desert adapted plants that will do well in your yard, giving your landscape color and interest.

If you are interested in finding out how you can have a lush landscape using these plants, please come and join Professor ML Robinson, environmental horticulturist, and discover how to use these wonderful plants in your landscape. Homeowners and other interested parties are welcome to attend.

There is a $10 fee for the workshop. Class space is limited and pre-registration is required. To register for the workshop held at the Lifelong Learning Center (8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nev., I-215 and Windmill Lane), email or call Elaine Fagin at 702-257-5573. Register online at Eventbrite.com.

The next Gardening in Small Places workshop dates are Oct. 21, roses; and Nov. 18, growing fruit at home.
