GROW-YOUR-OWN WORKSHOPS FOR 2020
Tuesdays ONLINE starting at 5:00PM
We have partnered with the UCCE Master Gardeners of Lake Tahoe, the Tahoe Heritage Foundation, and the UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center to offer a series of FREE gardening classes each season. All participants will receive starter plants to take home for their own gardens.
Cancelled for 2020
Garden volunteers are encouraged to come on Harvest Mondays and Workday Wednesdays instead.
THE GARDEN IS LOCATED...
in the Truckee Regional Park. From Brockway Road, turn onto Estates Drive (at the Truckee Skate Park) and head straight into the park entrance (rather than following the road to the right). Park there and follow the dirt path (indicated by the white footsteps below) that leads towards the "Music in the Park" venue. All are welcome!
