Carson Tahoe Health Collaboration
In a bountiful community collaboration with Carson Tahoe Health in late summer 2017, The Greenhouse Project established a state-of-the art hoop house and several raised planting beds, collectively called The Foothill Garden. Located behind the Carson Tahoe Cancer Center in north Carson City, Foothill Garden complements Carson Tahoe’s existing Creekside Garden on the west side of the Regional Medical Center Campus, which has been growing fresh produce and herbs since 2013. The gardens are managed by The Greenhouse Project, using our expertise in Nevada agriculture, worked by students who want to learn more about sustainability, and several helpful volunteers. The gardens on the Carson Tahoe campus provide vegetables year-round to The Eagle Valley Children’s Home and seniors in our community through Meals on Wheels. Throughout the year, we’ll be hosting informative gardening classes on various topics. Visit Carson Tahoe’s online calendar for more information. Many thanks to Carson Tahoe Health for joining us in this “growing” collaboration.
