2021 Growing Great Tomatoes: Cultivating for Health and Productivity

Mar 17, 2021 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm



Although there are no pre-requisites for this class, we will build on the topics addressed in "Growing Great Tomatoes: Tomato Fundamentals, Variety and Flavor," in which we learned about tomato terminology and considered factors such as disease resistance/susceptibility, days to maturity, yield, use and flavor profile. 

In "Growing Great Tomatoes: Cultivating for Health and Productivity," we go beyond the basics to address soils, planting dates, pruning, fertilizing, and proper staking/caging/trellising, and we learn to identify and troubleshoot some common tomato pests and diseases. 

This workshop will be offered as a live webinar using Demio.  Registered students will receive a webinar link with instructions a day or two prior to class.  The presentation will last about two hours and will be followed by a live chat Q&A (i.e.,students can type in their questions).
