Tomatoes in Arcata?…Do you have Greenhouse envy too? — I sure do!

Have you been wanting to grow tomatos...but you live on the coast?  Here is your answer!  Even a small home greenhouse is adequate to produce all those hot-weather crops we expect from the inland regions!

CSAs allow the member to support the farmer at the beginning of the year so that farmers don't need to take out expensive loans.  Members then come to this shed during the season and gather a basket of fresh produce.  The chalk board will list the number and type of crops that members can choose from.

Eddie also teaches a class on Organic Gardening through the Office of Extended Education at Humboldt State University in the spring semester — call (707) 826-3731 to be added to the mailing list for the next class.

    Hi Eddie,

    I really want to purchase your kitchen gardening course for my dad for his birthday (October 30) because it looks like EXACTLY what he’s looking for, but unfortunately it’s all full (as I assume it usually is!)
    I grew up in Humboldt and my parents just moved to a new place where my dad is really excited about growing a garden. I am a food activist/nutritionist and am in between gardens after recently moving back to Berkeley, but am really excited for my dad to have one of his own and know he’d be stoked about a class at HSU.
    I was wondering if there’s anyway of getting him into the course- I swear you won’t regret it because he’s the most fun person that you can ever meet. Seriously. This is probably a long shot, but let me know how I can get him in if possible! Thanks and congrats on all the growing you’re doing in behind the Redwood Curtain (especially tomatoes).

      Hi Kristin — I host the show that you heard with Eddie Tanner — but my day job is Extended Education Coordinator, so I work with Eddie to make his course available to the public. The class is not full — although it has been one of our most popular courses and will definitely fill up — so if you email me you snail mail address to bell@humboldt.edu I will add you to our bulletin mailing list so you can get your dad in the class as soon as it is available to the public. I’m sure your dad will have a great time in the class! What a great present — thanks! Jennifer
