$5.00

Topics covered include variety selection, cultural requirements, as well as the major disease and pests affecting these species.

Kate Ryan of Soil Sisters Plants & Produce will share what she’s learned in over 30 years of growing vegetables, herbs, and flowers in Western Washington. A self-professed lazy gardener, she’s learned from her many mistakes over the years. Tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, and eggplant are some of her favorites to grow. She’s learned what it takes to get a good harvest of these wonderful members of the Solanaceous family!

No matter if you only have a tiny apartment deck, small garden space, or plenty of acreage you can grow fresh, healthy food in a healthier, more environmentally friendly way.

In partnership with WSU Snohomish County Master Gardeners, the Growing Groceries program brings beginning and experienced gardeners together with speakers and topics focused on growing healthy food using sustainable gardening practices.

Developed over the last decade, our goal is to increase community access to fresh, healthy food by teaching the latest research-based techniques for growing food.
