Los Angeles Southern California Tomatomania 2017
 
Hey LA, the rain has prepped your garden for you. We predict a terrific tomato season!

TOMATOMANIA hits 2 sites in the Southland over the next 2 weekends – just in time for planting. We hope you can join us to choose from the most unique and exciting collection of tomatoes anywhere!

First, March 17-19 (this weekend!) we celebrate 15 years at Tapia Brothers Farm Stand. One of Los Angeles’ oldest garden traditions meets one of its newest sensations as our friends at Tapia Brothers again host the largest of the TOMATOMANIA! seedling sales. We’ll showcase almost 275 tomato varieties (yes, you read that right – 275!) and offer everything you’ll need to have the most successful tomato season ever.

A new twist this year: we’ll add some short classes and include expert guest appearances to offer you more garden thoughts and expertise! We’ll talk about tomato varieties, getting involved in Community Gardens, dream about veggie garden designs, and more. Check our website for more details!

This year your TOMATOMANIA purchases in Encino will also support a good cause; our good friends at www.foodforward.com. A portion of proceeds from every Sungold tomato seedling we sell will be donated to assist their efforts in Los Angeles and Ventura County.

Descanso Gardens hosts our traveling tomato circus the following weekend, March 25 and 26. Reds, yellows, oranges, stripes, blues…you can find them all in our tomato selection of over 150 varieties.

Flash classes (15-minute guides) on several topics will be held all throughout the weekend and our special guests on Saturday will be some of our favorite home farmers who can help you design and maintain your urban farm.

The Patina Group offers their usual amazing lunch and very special Bloody Mary Bar both days and after this moist season, you can bet the gardens, camellia forest, and all the wonderful features at Descanso will be looking their very best.

Our website will get you more details and remind you how to get a discount on the entry fee (ok, at the entry just show them our website or FB page on your phone!).

We can’t wait to talk tomatoes with you and we’ll showcase our favorite containers, fertilizers, and other products that will help you achieve the best season ever.

See you soon!
