Tapia Brothers Farm Stand, Encino, CA – March 17-19
This year we celebrate 15 years at this venerable LA site!
It’s the Whopper. The Big Kahuna, The T-Rex of tomato sales. One of Los Angeles’ oldest garden traditions meets one of its newest sensations as Tapia Brothers Farm Stand again hosts the largest of the TOMATOMANIA! seedling sales. We’ll showcase almost 300 tomato varieties (yes, you read that right)and offer everything you’ll need to have the most successful tomato season ever.
A new twist this year: we will add some short classes and include expert guest appearances to offer you more garden thoughts and expertise!
2:00pm “New & Exciting tomato varieties for 2017”
2:00pm “Picking the right tomatoes for your climate and location”
3:00pm “Garden anywhere: Getting involved with LA’s Community Garden Scene”
10:00am “Gardening with kids: Creating a tomato seed ball for at home planting”
1:00pm “Edible Landscaping: Creating the perfect garden to feed the family”
We’ll be open 9-5 all three days (even if it rains) and there’s plenty of parking available. How many seedlings do you need? Wear your TOMATOMANIA! t-shirt to get 10% off your purchase.
If you miss us during this weekend, don’t lose hope, you may find us there after the 19th as TOMATOMANIA continues…stay tuned.
• To get there drive north on the Ventura Freeway (101N), pass the 405 fwy and exit at HAYVENHURST. Turn right at the stop, then make a quick left into the very busy parking lot.
