Growing Tomatoes in Alameda

with Evan Krokowski of Farm2Market  

presented by Alameda Backyard Growers

Monday, February 9, 6:30-7:30PM

Rhythmix Cultural Works, 2513 Blanding Avenue, Alameda



Growing tomatoes in Alameda can be challenging.  Salt air, foggy days and nights, sandy soil and cool temperatures don’t add up to most tomatoes’ favorite environment.  But with careful variety selection and creative gardening practices, you can be much more successful with your tomato harvest.

Evan Krokowski, farm coordinator for Farm2Market, the job-training program, farm and CSA of Alameda Point Collaborative, will share his tips and tricks for tomato success in our island city. Please bring your own cultivation suggestions and questions, and we’ll have a great discussion. If you have a favorite tomato cultivar for growing in Alameda, please bring its name to share with your fellow gardeners.

ABG meetings are held monthly on second Mondays from 6:30-7:30PM at Rhythmix Cultural Works at 2513 Blanding in Alameda unless otherwise noted.

Monthly meetings/workshops are free and open to all residents of Alameda and the surrounding area. Gardeners of all experience levels are welcome! Monthly meetings are also a great time to drop off fruit and vegetable donations from your garden for the Alameda Food Bank. We deliver members’ produce to the Alameda Food Bank the following morning where it is typically distributed to food bank clients within 24 hours.
