New this year! While it may be a work in progress, we are very excited to begin building a garden to teach research-based gardening. The plans are to create a vegetable garden and an area for water wise plantings.
Master Gardeners are responsible for the Kiosk bed on the south side of the river off Bridge street in Las Vegas as part of this dynamic community project. Several of our Las Vegas MG members are key volunteers and board members planning and implementing this project.
