June 1: Summer Pruning

Yes, Virginia, there are many trees, shrubs and perennials that will benefit greatly from pruning now. Join Moana Nursery Plant Doctor and Certified Arborist Jon Bruyn to learn what to cut and how for beautiful, healthy plants. This seminar is for seasoned and newbie gardeners alike. A short presentation will be followed by hands-on pruning outdoors. You’ll not want to miss this one. Wear appropriate clothing for outside and bring your pruners and gloves. Class will last 1 hour.

June 8: Culinary/Medicinal Herbs from Your Garden

With so many herbs having multiple uses, this is a great opportunity to learn from local herb expert Kim Powers. She will teach you about herbs you may already be growing (or want to grow) as well as some in your spice rack that work well for health challenges or to maintain your good health. Kim will also share helpful hints on how to prepare the herbs and offer a few tidbits for you to taste.

Kim has been on the path of learning and sharing about herbs and essential oils for many years. She and her husband teach in the Herbal Studies program at Truckee Meadows Community College and at Headwaters Outdoor School in Mt. Shasta, CA. They live in the Virginia City area where most of what they plant feeds the wildlife in the area — whether or not it was their intention to share!

June 9: The Magic of Miniature Gardening Workshop – 1 p.m.

Join TV gardening host, radio personality and miniature gardening expert Arlena Schott for this lively lecture and hands on workshop. Arlena who is formerly of Fallon, Nevada, has received rave reviews for fun and engaging workshops. All the supplies you’ll need to create your very own miniature garden will be available for you to select and purchase during the workshop.

Workshop fee is $15. Must sign-up and pay in advance at our Moana Lane store or you can call 825-0600 and register with your credit card. (No shows will not be refunded their money.) Class size is limited to 30. Registration closes June 8 or when full, whichever comes first. Bring your gloves! Workshop is held at the Moana Lane store.
