Upcoming Farmer-to-Farmer Discussions


The first meeting took place on Tuesday, July 18, 2017 at Edgewater Farm in Plainfield, NH. Our host, Pooh Sprague, showed us his tunnel tomatoes, followed by round-table facilitated discussion of a range of high tunnel tomato growing issues.

As part of our project, we’re holding two farmer-to-farmer round-table discussions for experienced tunnel tomato growers, researchers, and Extension educators.  


We had a great turnout for the first meeting (see right), and the discussion was excellent. Please join us for the next one:

Thursday, August 3, 2017 at Johnny’s Selected Seeds in Winslow, ME, from 1:00 – around 3:00pm. The day will include a tour of the tomato trials at Johnny’s, an update of the research project, and a round table discussion of any and all the tomato growing issues growers raise.

With questions, or for more info, email becky.sideman@unh.edu.
