Tomato Growing for the Northern Gardener

"Mortgage Lifter", "Pineapple", "Matt's Wild", "Bloody Butcher", "Green Zebra". The list of amazing tomato varieties goes on and on and on, showing that the tomato is one of the most popular, and for some, challenging fruits to grow.

If you love tomatoes, this workshop is for you! Led by Carmen Lamoureux, owner and founder of Calgary's Urban Farm School,  Carmen is a tomato growing expert, having previously worked for Hotchkiss Herbs & Produce. 

Carmen will provide you with expert growing tips and tried-and-true tactics to maximize your tomato-growing (and tasting) experience, so that you'll come away with the confidence that you can grow the best tomatoes in our northern climate, even without a greenhouse.

In this workshop you will plant up a selection of tomato seeds to take home, and go away with the knowledge and confidence to raise your best tomato crop ever!
