Still excited because you Love Garlic so much? Did you know it grows REALLY WELL in our region ... Learn how to easily Grow Your Own with our Garlic Growing Course!
The mission of Reno Garlic Fest is to support our local garlic growers, inspire more people to grow garlic and build community around the love of garlic. The festival does an awesome job of supporting our local garlic growers and building community around the love of garlic, but we wanted to improve a bit on inspiring people to grow garlic so during Covid when we had to cancel the 2020 festival; we decided to adapt the one day, in-person celebration to a year long opportunity for education and inspiration and therefore decided to create an online course to help folks learn how to grow their own!
We coined the course 'A Year in Garlic,' and there are monthly articles and video tutorials brought to your by our very own Reno Garlic Fest growers and lovers. You don't need a facebook or instagram account to participate, and you don't need a lot of time or money to be involved.
If interested in joining the course, all you have to do is register for free on Mighty Networks (it's like a Facebook Group but there are NO ads or algorithms).
There's a super easy to use app that is free to download, but you can also do the course from your web browser:
