Canadian Heritage Tomatoes

Did you know that there are no longer any garden tomato breeding programs in Canada? All new varieties on the market are bred for American gardens and growing conditions. Most seed companies are importing seeds from other countries and tomatoes that were bred in Canada in decades past are being lost.

Join us at Diversity Gardens on Saturday, September 19th from 10am - 12 noon to explore why we need to save Canadian tomatoes and how we can do that. Taste test many varieties of organic heritage tomatoes, take home seed and stay for an afternoon tomato canning workshop.
