Carson Tahoe has teamed up with The Greenhouse Project, an agricultural and education-based nonprofit, to build the Foothill Garden on Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center's campus.
Located behind the Carson Tahoe Cancer Center in north Carson City, Foothill Garden includes a large hoop house and several raised plant beds. The garden will be managed by experts in growing produce in Nevada, worked by students who want to learn about more sustainability, and provide vegetables year-round to seniors in our community through Meals on Wheels
The Foothill Garden complements Carson Tahoe's existing Creekside Garden on the west side of the Regional Medical Center campus, which already donates seasonal produce to The Eagle Valley Children's Home.
The Creekside Garden on the west side of the Regional Medical Center campus got its start in 2013 and had been growing fresh produce and herbs for the Eagle Valley Children's Home.
