Earthwise Market Day focuses on tomatoes on Sept. 17

Earthwise Society is celebrating an abundant tomato harvest with its Tomato Festival at the fourth Earthwise Market Day of the season on Sept. 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 6400 3 Ave.

Irresistible heirloom tomatoes – more than 40 varieties – grown at Earthwise will be put on display and showcased for comparison of colours, smells, and tastes.

Browse the smorgasbord of organically grown treats, such as an exotic Thai pink egg tomato, a yellow cookie or a black African queen variety.

The Tomato Festival will feature freshly harvested produce from the Earthwise Farm along with local food and artisan vendors. Customized flower arrangements from the Earthwise Garden will be made to order, and their ecological gardening experts will help visitors select plants from the Earthwise Nursery for your home fall gardening projects.

Start your day with a pancake breakfast prepared by the Tsawwassen Lion’s club, from 10-11 am. Later, enjoy the taste of Earthwise tomatoes with pizza fresh from outdoor cob oven.

Music will be provided by the sounds of Social Revolts – featuring the young dynamic duo of Kenzie Peters and Taylor Reynold, covering favorites from artist ranging from Tom Petty to the Jackson 5 – and JPegs – Jenny Lundgren and Peg Keenleyside, who share vocals, rich harmonies and acoustic guitars on a wide range of pop standards, Canadian folk classics and contemporary singer-songwriter tunes.

If you are interested in volunteering at the event or want to know more, visit www.earthwisesociety.bc.ca, email info@earthwisesociety.bc.ca or call 604-946-9828.
