RENO, Nevada – A new project in the Reno area is bringing together University of Nevada, Reno’s Desert Farming Initiative, and Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada to provide locally grown produce to low-income families. Fresh fruits and vegetables are grown in a 2,600-square-foot hoop house year-round, and will help provide nutritious foods every day to families in the area, along with local food pantries and senior centers.
