Grow Your Own Workshops

2022 Grow Your Own Workshop Series

Virtual Grow Your Own High Elevation Gardening workshops are a collaboration of three local organizations: UCCE Master Gardeners of Lake Tahoe, Slow Food Lake Tahoe and Tahoe Environmental Research Center - UC  Davis.

This year's FREE VIRTUAL workshops will get you excited and ready to prepare for growing your own food.  These workshops are fun for all ages with participants receiving instruction on cultivation techniques, history/background on the plants being highlighted.   Below are the classes and links to Slow Food Lake Tahoe for registration.  Note that some courses offer plants, bulbs or seeds for sale should you want them.  Quantities are limited so order so order quickly. Some workshops are also offered in-person on different dates in the Slow Food Lake Tahoe Gardens in Truckee, CA.
