Kudos & Kindness: June Day Jamboree a success

The Lake Tahoe Master Gardeners would like to thank the community for making our June Day Jamboree event a success! Workshop speakers gave informed talks on topics ranging from the need to feed our soil to how to grow vegetables in our challenging mountain environment. The accompanying plant sale raised funds to help our volunteer force defray costs of providing instructional and other materials in our efforts to be a gardening resource for our community. And we thank our ukulele players for adding a fun and entertaining element to our summer kick-off event.

We would also like to extend our gratitude to South Tahoe Refuse for setting up a plant pot drop off point through the end of June to allow us to recycle and reuse pots for our next sale. Plant pots can be dropped off in the blue bin with the Master Gardener logo at the Refuse Transfer Station, located at 2140 Ruth Ave., through June 30.

Finally, the Master Gardeners will hold a series of Green Thumb workshops beginning June 16 through July 30. We hope you will join us for these one-hour workshops that will be held around the lake.
