Home-grown fruit available at master gardener orchard
The University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Orchard in North Las Vegas offers home-grown fruit for purchase. The orchard is only open to the public on volunteer days: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings from 7 a.m. to noon.
Beginning in May, apricots will be ripe.
Also available is fruit wood for smoking and grilling, priced at $1 per pound, and bee boxes; a $5 donation per box is asked.
Additionally, back by popular demand, is the community mulch pile. This is coarse, organic wood mulch chipped from trees removed in the Las Vegas community. Because it is coarse, the mulch will not blow under high winds. It also allows good water and air penetration to the roots. It will decompose in a couple of years adding organic matter to your soil, helping lower the pH and encouraging soil microorganisms and worms.
Rather than sending the valuable resource to the landfill, it is offered free to the public. The pile is located within the orchard; just stop by during operating hours.
It is possible to arrange a delivery of mulch greater than 10 cubic yards. Call 257-5555 or e-mail email@example.com for details.
To visit the orchard, located at 4400 Horse Drive, North Las Vegas, take U.S. 95 north or Interstate 15 north to the Las Vegas Beltway. Head east toward Aliante and exit on Aliante Parkway. Travel north to Horse Drive and turn left.
