Our head gardener calls this class, “The tomato gardening class for those who usually kill plants.” Over the course of 90 minutes, you will transplant tomato seedlings into pots and learn the best methods to ensure a crop of beautiful cherry tomatoes.
Each person will receive three ifarm-grown tomato seedlings (a $15 value). We have selected organic Super Sweet 100, Sun Gold, and Black Cherry tomatoes as they are some of the EASIEST, tastiest, and most productive cherry tomatoes out there. Once we set the foundation in class, these tomato plants can be grown with basic care (about half an hour each week) in a pot on a porch, in the garden, or anywhere with six hours of sun per day. During the class, you will learn how to transplant your seedlings to a larger pot or garden bed at home.
Each tomato plant will produce roughly one pound of cherry tomatoes.
We will have a limited supply of extra tomato seedlings- You can preorder extra plants to pick up on your class date. First come first served! If you will be planting your seedlings in a garden bed, you will need enough space to put at least three feet between each tomato plant.
This is a hands-on class with demonstrations: Please come dressed to work with plants and soil, and prepared to be in a greenhouse or outdoors. ifarm will provide gardening gloves for participants to use during the class.
In the case of cancellation and rescheduling due to weather, we will send out an email to all registrants at least 12 hours before the event. We will also send out an update on our facebook page. You can read about our cancellation policy here.
