RENO — Learn the best ways to grow fruits, vegetables and herbs in northern Nevada’s challenging climate when the May Arboretum Society offers a workshop on High Desert Edible Gardening Workshop from 9 a.m. to noon on April 11 in the Ranch House adjacent to the Wilbur D. May Arboretum. 

Truckee Meadows Community College instructor and avid local gardener Suzanne Cody Adams will talk about appropriate growing conditions for various plants and how to incorporate organic growing methods.

Class fee is $40, or $35 for members of the May Arboretum Society. Part of the proceeds will benefit Washoe County’s Wilbur D. May Arboretum and Botanical Garden.  Make checks payable to the May Arboretum Society and send to P.O. Box 6225, Reno NV 89531. Reservations are requested and can be made by calling 785-4153.  

The Wilbur D. May Arboretum and Botanical Gardens celebrates 25 years as the region’s premier public garden in 2011-2012.

The arboretum was made possible with funding from the Wilbur D. May Foundation and receives continued support from the Wilbur D. May Foundation, May Arboretum Society volunteers and the community at large.
