THUR 7/12 @ 7 PM Tomato Growing

Thursday, June 23rd, 2022

Thursday, July 12 @ 7PM – 8PM in the Library

Without question, tomatoes are the number one home garden crop.  We will teach you the best ways to maximize your harvest. Join Blackstone Valley Veggie Gardens, as they teach you the best methods for growing your own tomatoes at home!

Blackstone Valley Veggie Gardens’ mission is to inspire others to grow their own fresh produce. They deliver residential and community based training, consulting, and assistance in vegetable garden development.  They are dedicated to the belief that most people should have the knowledge and opportunity to grow wholesome fruits and veggies in containers, raised beds, or in-ground gardens.

This is an in-person event in the library Community Meeting Room.

Free, all welcome.
