Gatherings in the Garden: Tomatoes


Gatherings in the Garden: Tomatoes, 4/10/2021 – 10:00 AM -11:00 AM

Join us on Saturday, April 10th, for the next session in our popular online Gatherings in the Garden educational series!

With this presentation, we continue our theme of vegetable gardening by focusing on the venerable tomato.

The tomato is the most popular garden vegetable crop. It comes in a wide range of sizes, shapes, and colors. All gardeners can be successful in growing tomatoes! This presentation will address the origins of the vegetable and discuss best practices for growing and enjoying tomatoes.
