1431 Waverley Street Palo Alto, CA 94301


This Zoom Class on Tomato Growing will take you through the characteristics of the tomato varieties that will be on sale at Gamble Garden this spring. Some are good in salads, some in sauces, some are good baked, and so on. They also have different growing requirements. We will email you a list of the tomato varieties and (once you print it) you will be able to annotate the list during the Zoom session.

After we have guided you through the varieties of tomatoes, Vicki Sullivan, tomato grower extraordinaire, will tell you her recipe for growing a successful tomato crop and she will demonstrate the process.

You will also be emailed her recipe for the soil amendments and a selection of delicious recipes.

This class will be held via Zoom. Attendees can join with a PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone or Android device. If you do not have a Zoom account, download Zoom and create a free account prior to the class. Gamble Garden will email all registered attendees the class Zoom link 1-2 days prior to the class.
