In celebration of National Agriculture Month in March and to help provide education and support for Nevada’s agriculture producers, associated businesses and others, University of Nevada, Reno Extension is partnering with other organizations to host three agriculture conferences throughout the state.

They are the Nevada Urban Agriculture Conference in North Las Vegas, March 6-8; the Nevada Small Agriculture Conference in Fallon, March 13-15; and the Bee and Garden Conference in Minden, March 22-24.

There will also be a farm-to-fork dinner in North Las Vegas and a grow-local dinner in Fallon.

“Extension is very excited to be able to offer educational opportunities to urban and small farm producers, as well as beekeepers and others, to provide them with the latest research and information on resources to help them be successful,” Staci Emm, Extension educator, said. “We realize that our local food systems are extremely important to our communities and want to facilitate long-term sustainability.”

In addition to agriculture producers, the conferences also offer learning opportunities for others, such as chefs and restaurant owners, recreational gardeners, youth gardeners, and others, depending on the conference.
