Slow Food Lake Tahoe, in partnership with the UCCE Master Gardeners of Lake Tahoe, and UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center are once again offering a free high elevation organic gardening workshop series focused on edible plants that grow best in the Sierras. It’s free to attend the workshops and receive instruction from our local gardening experts who will cover river and lake friendly techniques on how to grow organically at high elevation. Participants will also have an opportunity to purchase starts of their own for $15 which will include a mix of varieties specifically chosen because they grow best in our region.
