Instead of meeting for our regular monthly gardening club meeting we’ll attend the fruit tree pruning class on Saturday 12/19/15 in Las Vegas. Bob Morris taught two of the Master Gardener classes in Kingman this spring and he’s extremely knowledgeable.
We’re leaving Meadview around 6:45 am and we still have a couple of seats in the truck available, so please let me know if you’re interested in riding with us.
You can also attend the class on quite a few other days, so if you plan on going to Vegas before Christmas, check it out:
FREE pruning classes being offered at the Cooperative Extension campus and at the Research Center Orchard.
Please see the schedule below.
If you have any questions, please call the Master Gardener Help Desk at 702-257-5556.

It’s time for us to seriously think about which bare root fruit trees to order for our new orchard and I’m sure we’ll learn a lot!
We’re hoping to get a discount and at the January gardening club meeting you can add to our order. I’ll post more info here too as we get closer.
