Saturday March 9th
Taught by Craig LeHoullier
We are excited to welcome Craig LeHoullier, author of the book Epic Tomatoes, to speak and share his vast knowledge and love of the tomato – history, stories, culture and breeding tips. Craig has been an advisor for Seed Savers Exchange for many years and it was there that he introduced the popular Cherokee Purple tomato. More recently he and others have created 100 new tomato varieties in their Dwarf Tomato Breeding Project. This venture crossed an obscure dwarf tomato strain with the most beloved heirlooms to produce short and stocky plants perfect for smaller gardens and container growing. We are excited to offer ‘BrandyFred Dwarf’ in our vegetable line-up this year. In this talk Craig will share his stories and knowledge and passion for tomatoes and copies of his book ‘Epic Tomatoes, will be available for sale and signing.
