Join Michelle Deetken, Ph.D., holistic nutritionist, gardener and local author for this enlightening primer on Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. She’ll discuss why gardening is a great activity to combat Alzheimer’s, the importance of fresh fruits and veggies and the best ones for northern Nevada gardens. She will have her book “Alzheimer’s Disease, A Holistic Approach” available for purchase (cash or check) and signing.

April 26: Beginner’s Guide to Bountiful Tomatoes and Their Cousins

Join Plant Doctor and long-time high desert gardener Jon Bruyn to learn how easy it is to successfully grow and harvest tomatoes and other complementary warm season vegetables in the high desert. He’ll discuss varieties and proper care throughout the season with an emphasis on container growing. While this presentation is tailored to the novice gardener, it will cover many tips that advanced gardeners will find useful.

May 3: High Desert Water-Wise Plants and Planting

To be water-wise in the high desert does not mean your yard is restricted to rock and a limited, boring plant palette. You’ll learn there are many perennials, annuals, trees and shrubs that are water-wise once established and that one of the biggest water wasters in a landscape is a poorly designed and maintained irrigation system. You’ll leave armed with inspiration and information to have a beautiful landscape which is also water-thrifty.

All seminars are free and held at Moana Nursery, 1190 W. Moana Lane, in our Landscape and Design Center unless otherwise stated. Seminars begin promptly at 10 a.m. and last one hour unless otherwise noted. Please arrive 15 minutes early as seating is limited to 60 and is first come, first served.
