Guest Speaker: Tomato grower expert, Dale K. Thurber, Ph.D. of Delectation of Tomatoes!

Your seed is the foundation of your entire garden. Think about it -- if you plant a tomato you are never going to grow a pepper.  duh!  Stay with me here... So it follows if you start with a line of meh seed you will get a meh crop -- or worse -- you could end up with nothing.  But we often don’t think about the subtleties of variety selection. 

Beginners to experts are going to love this workshop. We will have a lesson on growing tomatoes and then get right to planting. Each participant will plant 12 tomato plants (from seed) and then take them home to sprout and nurture. Be ready for your spring garden by starting your tomatoes on time.

At this workshop we will do a deep dive into tomatoes. How to grow them and how to pick a variety.  We will have 20+ Heirloom varieties to choose from here is the list. Click Here for detailed list.
