Gardening in the Tahoe-Truckee area is both challenging and rewarding.  And there is a community of fellow gardeners in the area that can relate to your problems and successes.

This community event is both an open house afternoon/evening educational event hosted by UC Davis TERC as part of an event series in collaboration with the UCCE Lake Tahoe Master Gardeners and Slow Food Lake Tahoe. 

Local gardeners participating in the GYO varietal phenology project can pick up all of the year’s seedlings on this day, learn watershed-friendly gardening techniques, find out tips for growing in the challenging high elevation Tahoe-Truckee area, and ask specific questions of presenters or any garden related question of master gardeners.

More information to come. For more questions or to participate contact Logan Witt (lwitt@ucdavis.edu).
