Volunteers help clean up Incline Village demonstration garden

Staff report

The Wells Fargo Advisors Incline Village branch office volunteered at the North Lake Tahoe Demonstration Garden at Sierra Nevada College on Wednesday, April 16.

This event was in conjunction with Wells Fargo's "Community Blooms" campaign, which encourages team members to become involved in community activities they¹re most passionate about.

The group helped with raking and bagging pine needles, picking up pine cones and other garden waste, and deadheading last year's spent growth, among other gardening chores.

Team members Heather Hall, Jessica Abrams and Emmett Hall were pleased to present Margaret Solomon, president of the garden, a grant to assist the nonprofit with future improvements.

The North Lake Tahoe Demonstration Garden is an educational community garden at SNC Tahoe, planned, maintained and supported entirely by volunteers.

The garden promotes lake-friendly landscaping and conservation planning to help preserve our unique and fragile alpine environment. Visit demogarden.org to learn more.
