Dead Plant Society Workshop Series

Bugs, bees, bats and butterflies all do the important job of pollinating our plants so they can produce tasty fruits, veggies and flowers for us to enjoy. Without bees, no juicy tomatoes or crunchy carrots! This workshop will explore which pollinator plants grow best in the high desert, how you can make your yard friendly to these critters, and offer a delicious honey taste test! Each participant will go home with pollinator friendly seeds and honey. One lucky Dead Plant Society Attendee will receive a nursery gift card to up your yard game with pollinator friendly plants!

Dead Plant Society Workshop Series

Green and red tomato on vine 2.jpg

Tomatoes in Reno can be tricky! We've all heard that until the snow melts off of Peavine, we must wait to put tomatoes in the ground. But what about trellising, pests, disease and what to do with green 'maters? In this workshop we'll explore the intricacies of tomato care through the summer. Each participant will leave with trellising materials and organic tomato fertilizer. One lucky Dead Plant Society Attendee will receive a complete set up to can tomatoes at home.
