Reno Food Systems' & Be The Change Project bring you 'A Year in Garlic' course in place of Reno Garlic Fest 2020


In keeping with the 2020 times, we had to cancel this year's Reno Garlic Fest ... BUT just because we couldn't celebrate garlic for one day in person this summer, doesn't mean we couldn't celebrate a little differently and virtually all year! 

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 was doing an awesome job of supporting our local garlic growers and building community around the love of garlic but could improve a bit on inspiring people to grow garlic ... so we decided to adapt the festival from a 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 have coined the course 'A Year in Garlic,' and there will be 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.

Not only will there be quick, easy to implement tips, but we will also be doing promotions on our social media accounts (follow us on Instagram and Facebook here if you fancy) of free garlic braids, free garlic seed, and free 'get a farmer to come to your house and help you plant garlic' for those who join and participate in our 'A Year in Garlic' community.

If interested in joining the course, all you have to do is register for free on Mighty Networks. There's a free app but you can also do the course from your web browser: Go HERE And register for the our FREE Garlic Growing Course!!

Our hope is that we can also grow and connect our garlic community and learn from one another. We're not the sage on the stage here; we think we can all learn from each other and are excited to see what building this community brings.

This event is funded by Nevada Department of Agriculture and is cosponsored by Be the Change Project.
