A new year means a new line up of Gardening in Small Places classes. These are monthly classes offered by our local Cooperative Extension located at 8050 Paradise Rd, Las Vegas 89123. These are some of my favorite learning opportunities here in Las Vegas because the classes are four hours long. This gives the class plenty of time to explore the topic in greater depth. Each class runs from 8am to noon and costs $25. Contact Elaine Fagin at 702-257-5573 or firstname.lastname@example.org to register. Here is the list of Gardening in Small Places classes for 2016.
