The Enjoy Centre, 101 Riel Drive

Posted on July 29, 2017

Did you love growing tomatoes? Want to learn more about growing tomatoes or what to make with them? Come to Tomato Extravaganza at the Enjoy Centre!
It will be an educational and fun-filled day for adults and kids alike.

-Take a tour with Jim Hole and see the Enjoy Centre “Tomato Alley” to see hundreds of hybrid and heritage tomato plants (including one that can grow up to 60 feet tall!)
-Friendly tomato growing competitions: We want the largest, heaviest tomato you can possibly grow. Feed Brutus, Mortgage Lifter, Beefmaster, and other “biggies” to receive the biggest honour of this event! Then, show us your most oddly formed, weirdest, wonkiest tomato grown in your patch. There’s a prize for that too!
-Cooking demonstrations by the ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen. Doreen Prie and Kathryn Joel from Get Cooking Edmonton will showcase tomato recipes which will leave you salivating for more!
-Workshops & talks about tomato growing tips and tricks, saving seeds, & preserving tomatoes,
-Tastings of local dishes featuring tomatoes from Get Cooking Edmonton and the Roti Shop.
-Children activities and much more!

Bring your extra tomatoes for Edmonton’s Food Bank to share with those in need! Edmonton’s Food Bank takes garden produce as part of our Plant a Row, Grow a Row program that shares fresh garden produce with our neighbours in need.

Tomato Extravaganza goes from 2 to 8 pm.
Tickets $5 Children 11 and under are free.
