Known, as "The Tomato Whisperer," Peter Olpe will speak about the
history, cate and culture of Heirloom Tomatoes. What makes an
heirloom tomato? Why do home-grown tomatoes taste so much more
delicious that store-bought ones? When Should you plant tomatoes?
These questions and may more will be answered during Peter's
interesting talk about coastal varities of heirloom tomatoes?
The Pacific Palisades Garden Club, a nonprofit organization founded in 1944, attracts people living in the Westside communities of the Los Angeles area who enjoy gardening and also like spending time with other gardeners. Its large membership enables it to offer numerous activities unavailable to smaller garden groups.
The Club's sociable monthly meetings, open free to the public, feature speakers who present informative programs on a wide variety of garden-connected topics. Its members are regularly invited to visit local private gardens, and twice a year they can take special daylong tours via chartered bus to prominent public garden sites, garden shows, and special nurseries in outlying areas.
PPGC's Spring Garden Tour is a popular event, and the income it generates helps this charitable organization to support worthy local educational, beautification, and conservation efforts involved in some way with the plant kingdom.
