Continuing the popular Saturday gardening seminar series, Travis County Master Gardener Association will sponsor five new public seminars scheduled from March to September in 2019. Master Gardener Vegetable Specialist Patty Leander will kick-off this year's seminar series on March 30, 2019, with a presentation on tomatoes. She will share her knowledge of how to overcome some common challenges that adversely affect tomatoes, such as common bugs and diseases.
In addition, Patty will share harvesting tips and some of her favorite recipes for enjoying your tomato bounty. New or long-time gardeners will benefit from the seminar, whether you have a large backyard garden, participate in a community garden, or have a few potted tomatoes on your balcony.
No registration is required. Attendance to the seminar is free. A Zilker Botanical Garden entrance fee is required. The fees are $2 per adult, $1 per child (ages 3-12) or seniors (age 62 & over), and $3 for non-Austin Residents. Cash or check accepted.
