Douglas High School agriculture students planted this week in preparation for the return of the school’s annual plant sales.
The high school has a greenhouse and grows the hanging baskets sold by Main Street Gardnerville that brighten up the main drag every summer.
The students are also preparing for the plant sale, which will be June 3-4 and June 10, according to Ag teacher Robin Futch.
China Spring Youth Camp’s annual plant sale starts May 8.
All the plants are grown in the China Spring greenhouse, where small plants are $7 and large plants are $15.
The Camp is also growing hanging baskets of petunias and pots. To order email firstname.lastname@example.org.
A score of volunteers turned out to work on the Heritage Park Gardens on Earth Day last weekend.
There were still a handful of garden beds available to rent at the community garden located in Gardnerville.
Every 9 a.m. to noon Thursday through May to September, UNR Extension Master Gardeners will be available to answer community questions about home landscapes at 1325 Waterloo Lane, Gardnerville.
For more information, contact Jessica Gardner at 775-309-1550.
The Main Street in Bloom program is seeking purchasers to buy the flower baskets. Find out more at www.mainstreetgardnerville.org/annual-events/sponsorships-registrations/hanging-flower-basket-sponsor/
In Nevada’s Oldest Town, 15-20 volunteers, many of them members of Friends of Genoa, swept the town on Saturday.
On Arbor Day, a blue spruce was purchased for Genoa Park, which has lost some trees to the winter weather and as part of the clean-up to achieve status as a Fire-Safe Community.
