Extension offers home gardening courses online

The University of Nevada, Reno Extension, is working to bring more gardening lessons online, and a virtual indoor gardening certificate program will begin in August. The program is led by Extraordinary Gardeners and provides in-depth knowledge of how to care for their garden in Northern Nevada.

“This series prepares you to enroll in a master gardening training program and to become a volunteer,” said Rachel McLlore, coordinator of the Wasow County Master Gardener. However, it is also a good lesson for those who are not interested in volunteering, but who need a deep understanding of the basics to take care of their own landscape.

Science-based information covers topics including domestic plants, lawns and grasses, soil, pests and water quality. Ten sessions are highlighted from 1 to 4 Tuesday, Tuesday, and Thursday, August 17 – September 16. Two session sessions are scheduled for July 15 and August 3.

The program is $ 185 and includes all materials. Participants must attend all sessions to obtain an indoor garden certificate.
