Topic - Home Grown Tomatoes - Beginner
If there is just one edible plant that you should choose to grow at home, it is the tomato. Nowhere else is the contrast in flavor, nutrition and variety between “home-grown” and “store-bought” more evident. This how-to class for beginners will provide all the practical knowledge necessary to begin growing tomatoes today. Learn which varieties to grow, how to plant and care for tomatoes and common diseases and pests that afflict them.

Speaker - Dave Freed
Dave Freed researches, educates and helps other backyard farmers successfully grow the ever popular home-grown tomato. Every year Dave grows a variety of Hybrids, Heirlooms, Cherry and Beefsteak tomatoes in both containers and regular backyard soil. He always has plenty of tomatoes and is always happy to share his tips on growing “Home Grown Tomatoes”.

A Note to Parents: The Centennial Farm is open to the public 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on this day. However, we ask that children not be left unattended in the Farm while you are enjoying the Garden Class. Classes are intended for participants 16 years and older only.
