Carson Community Garden Program offers garden beds for aspiring gardeners
Cooperative Extension offers tools and assistance to those wanting to start gardening
There are still six garden beds available for use this season at the Carson City Community Garden for residents who are interested in growing their own vegetables, herbs and flowers. For 18 years, University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Community Garden Program, in partnership with Carson City Parks and Recreation, has offered 25 4-by-16-foot garden beds to new and returning community gardeners.
“This program is a perfect way to kick off the spring and gardening season,” said Carson City Extension Educator Lisa Taylor. “Community members have an opportunity to grow their own produce and flowers without needing space in their own backyards.”
The price to reserve a garden bed is $20 for the season and covers water and use of select garden tools and resources. In addition, Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners will periodically be available to provide leadership and mentoring on-site throughout the gardening season.
The garden is located at 1044 Beverly Drive in Carson City. For more information on the Carson City Community Garden, or to reserve a garden bed for the season, contact Taylor at 775-887-2252.
