NOW Two Locations for Fruit Tree Pruning Classes in December

A second site has been added to the pruning classes; the UNCE Learning Center.  All classes begin at 845am and conclude by 100pm.

I will be giving free fruit tree pruning classes to the public on Saturdays and Tuesdays in December. Classes will be held at the UNCE MG Demonstration Orchard and UNCE Learning Center. The UNCE Master Gardener Orchard is located 100 yards east of the intersection of North Decatur and Horse Road. Horse Road is located 2.8 miles north of the Bruce Woodbury Beltway in North Las Vegas. 

The UNCE Learning Center is located at 8050 Paradise Road just north of the intersection of East Windmill and Paradise (east of I-215). Bring your pruning shears, loppers and saw if you have them.
