Workshop - How to Grow Epic Tomatoes in YOUR gardens - Cameron Village Library

It may be surprising to learn that our love affair with this most essential summer vegetable (...botanically, a fruit) began in the mid 1800s. Filled with colorful pictures, Craig (who was fortunate to name the Cherokee Purple tomato in 1990) will take you through a bit of history, stories behind some of his favorite varieties, and the most important gardening tips to help everyone grow truly epic tomatoes in their own gardens. Be sure to bring all of your gardening questions.

Workshop - Bringing Your Garden to the Sun, Eva Perry Library

Few of us have idea areas in our yard for a garden, but most of us have a nice sunny spot. Containers or straw bales are the perfect way to ensure that each of us will know what it is like to taste a freshly harvested tomato. Filled with colorful pictures, Craig's workshop will lead everyone through the key success factors of bringing your gardens to where the sun shines best in your yards. Be sure to bring all of your gardening questions.
