If you grow food in Lake Tahoe or are thinking about it, a seven-part virtual series on high elevation gardening may be just what you need!

UC Davis TERC, Slow Food Lake Tahoe, UCCE Master Gardeners of Lake Tahoe, and the Tahoe Heritage Foundation are bringing back the Grow Your Own: High Elevation Gardening Series Workshops for the 2021 gardening season. They are all held on Tuesdays from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

High elevation gardening can be tricky! Enjoy instruction from an expert who will cover planting, harvesting, river/lake-friendly gardening techniques, biology discussions, and information on the history of this group of food crops. The virtual class is FREE. Starter plants are available after most classes for $10, payable during the registration process.
