The much-anticipated Earthwise Heirloom Tomato Festival is back on Saturday, Sept. 16 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Earthwise Garden.
The Tomato Festival is a family-friendly community gathering that celebrates the history and diversity of B.C. agriculture with a focus on heirloom tomatoes, drawing attention to the impressive variety of produce that is available at our local farms.
One of the festival’s star attractions is the dazzling array of unique heirloom tomatoes available for sampling and purchase.
From sweet and juicy to tangy and robust, the heirlooms showcase the incredible diversity of flavours and colours that tomatoes can offer.
The Heirloom Tomato Fest would not be complete without highlighting the cultural and culinary significance of tomatoes, and this year, food enthusiasts are in for a real treat.
Las Catrinas Cuisine, a beloved Mexican take-out business based in Ladner, will be on hand showcasing their culinary skills with tomato-inspired dishes. Guests will enjoy a cooking demonstration featuring the vibrant flavours of authentic Mexican cuisine, with a special focus on tomatoes.
While at the festival, don’t miss the chance to visit the Earthwise Farm Cart, which will be brimming with Earthwise Society’s own certified organic produce.
Ve-Jane Duong from Fusion Micro Farm will also be on site to showcase her unique selection of heirloom vegetables. Wrap up the day with a leisurely stroll through the Earthwise Garden’s picturesque landscape to see what’s in bloom.
Mark your calendars and join in celebrating the tapestry of local produce, the wonder of heirloom tomatoes, and our vibrant community.
