Tomato Mania Time!

Don't forget, tomorrow is the start of Tomato Mania at Tapia Brothers Farm in Encino! This is the place to go and get your seedlings to kick off your summer vegetable planting season.

This 3-day event features nearly 300 varieties of tomatoes, many of them heirloom varieties and it's at one of our last, local, farms, Tapia Brothers. It runs from Friday, April 4, through Sunday, April 6, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tapia Brothers is located just off the 101 Freeway at 5251 Hayvenhurst, just off the Burbank Blvd. off ramp. This the largest of Tomato Mania's seedling sales, for more info. check out the site http://www.tomatomania.com/

Hello! I live in Santa Monica, CA, and am wondering if there is any way I could work on a farm in the area. Or a similar environment. Would you know of places that need help? I worked a little plot of land on the Vet's garden and it spurred so much more interest in me!

Hi!

Well, I will have to put on my thinking cap. I would think the Vet's Garden still needs help. I know a lot of places need volunteers, don't know if they have "real" work per se. I will think about it.

Thanks for visiting the farm!
