Description

Hermann Park Conservancy's FREE garden class series in the McGovern Centennial Gardens continues with a session on tasty tomatoes!

So easy to eat, so hard to grow... or are they? Tomatoes are so tasty and useful. Making tasty treats such as tomato paste, tomato sauce, salsa, pizza sauce, fried green tomatoes, and of course just plain fresh ripe garden tomatoes.

Join us in the McGovern Centennial Gardens to learn about growing tomatoes in Houston from Hermann Park Conservancy's own lead horticulturist Daniel Millikin

Daniel (Dany) is an area expert specializing in incorporating edible plants into your landscape. He also builds gardens that bring fresh fruits and veggies to your kitchen just about year-round. Dany currently serves his fellow Houstonians by working as the main plant and soil specialist for the Hermann Park Conservancy. He has written several articles and taught many presentations on the subject of growing plants in great soil in Houston, Texas.

This class is free and open to the public. Space is limited and advanced registration is required. To register, click the registration link above.

The Family Garden is an edible, interactive garden, designed to showcase vegetables, herbs, fruit, citrus, and berries that can be grown successfully in the Houston area. The entire Houston community is invited to participate in cultivating these beds, and to experience the touch, the scents, the colors, and the taste of fresh vegetables and herbs. You may see beds in various stages of production, from newly-planted all the way to harvest-ready. To learn more about the Family Garden, click here.

Join Hermann Park Conservancy the last Wednesday of each month as local experts share tips and tricks focusing on gardening topics and techniques. For a full calendar of Conservancy events, visit hermannpark.org/calendar.
