Grow Your Own - Potatoes
Time & Location
About The Event
Join us for a FREE Grow Your Own virtual workshop focusing on growing organic potatoes at high altitude on Tuesday, May 11th at 5pm PT, taught by Master Gardner Melissa Guthrie. As many of us know, high elevation gardening is tricky! Enjoy instruction from an expert who will cover planting, harvesting, pest management, river/lake friendly gardening techniques, biology discussions, and information on the history of this group of food crops.
You MUST pre-register for the free virtual workshop by reserving a ticket below. If you are unable to attend the live workshop you can still register to purchase starter plants. The virtual workshop will be recorded and posted on this site to watch at a later time.
In addition, $10 starter plants are available for pick-up in Truckee, Tahoe City, and South Lake on the Saturday morning following each class. Payment at time of class registration is required to reserve your starts. Participants will be sent a brief end of season growing survey to help identify successful varieties for the difficult Truckee/Tahoe climate. All proceeds from plant sales will go towards future Grow Your Own workshops.
The Grow Your Own workshop series is brought to you by UC Davis TERC, UCCE Master Gardeners of Lake Tahoe, the Tahoe Heritage Foundation, and Slow Food Lake Tahoe. We appreciate your support of our programs!
