About The Event

Join us for a FREE Grow Your Own workshop focusing on Spicy Salads with Leafy Greens grown at high elevation taught by Master Gardener, Alison Toy.  We will be hosting both a virtual and in-person workshop on different dates.  Attend one or both, either way it's FREE!

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 workshop by reserving a ticket below. If you are unable to attend a 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.  The in-person workshop will be held at the Slow Food Lake Tahoe Gardens located in the Truckee River Regional Park.

In addition, a $15 variety pack of starter plants specifically chosen for our climate is available for pick-up in Truckee, Tahoe City, or South Lake on the Saturday morning following the virtual class, 9am-11am.  Pay in advance to reserve your starts AND help support the future of the Grow Your Own Program. You’ll receive a plentiful amount of starter seeds of multiple varieties.

*All plant varieties and counts subject to change based on the success of growing the starts

Participants growing the provided starts will be sent a brief end of season growing survey to help identify successful varieties for the difficult Truckee/Tahoe climate.

The Grow Your Own workshop series is brought to you by the UCCE Master Gardeners of Lake Tahoe, UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center, and Slow Food Lake Tahoe.  We appreciate your support of our programs!
