Tomato Club

June 22, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

You are invited to the first convening of the Tomato Club with Margaret. A gathering for the art of growing, enjoying and exploring all things tomato. Please RSVP by Friday noon driving instructions and confirmation of your attendance.

Your first time is free. Regularly a $5 suggested donation. Tomato Club runs through October or when the tomato plants decide they’re done.

No blood sweat and tears, just a chance to gather, appreciate and expand on our curiosities. Twice monthly, program is based on the tomato growing season.

What we’re doing:
1) DO: Tomato plant care basics like tickling, pinching and tying up. True stuff.
2) EXPLORE: Make garlic scape pesto
3) TASTE: Try green tomato jam with homemade cheese, garlic scape pesto and Dutch oven bread.

Wear sturdy shoes and casual clothes. Plan to be outdoors for half the time. Poe Run Craft and Provisions is a working homestead. It is a mountainside property and partially off grid. The terrain is variable and may not be suitable for all people. We will do our best to accommodate anyone who wants to come. Each gathering includes time in the garden.

Future topics/activities include Mom’s pizza, how to dehydrate and ferment tomatoes, what to do with green tomatoes, home canning, worm farming and comfrey fertilizer, National Tomato Month, recipe swap, seed exchange, community art project and tomato inspired gifts.
