Tomato Tasting

Taste the garden at this free event! Come try the many varieties we grow at this celebration of all things tomato in our Hilltop learning garden.

  • What tomatoes did we grow this year?

  • What did we learn?

  • Share recipes and preservation ideas

  • Try surprising new tastes and classic varieties

  • Rank your favorite tomato!

  • What tomatoes performed as expected?


Come try the many tomatoes grown fresh by our Master Gardeners, stewards, and volunteers. Bring your friends and family!

Taste the garden!


We have spent the season growing a large variety from slicers, to paste, cherry, and all kinds of heirloom. These tomatoes were started from seed right here in Hilltop and grown all season in our garden beds and pots. Learn about how to grow your own tomatoes and discuss the takeaways from our season of growing. Learn about our mission of food security in the neighborhood. Come taste the garden before we put it to bed for the season.


This community event is a place to share your experiences and talk with our Master Gardeners and volunteers! We are here to share knowledge and support gardeners of all skill levels. Not just about tomatoes. We love questions. You can also enjoy our YouTube channel for more. There will be plenty of information available at the event for you to learn what you like, tomatoes you may be interested in growing next season, seeds to share, as well as information on our next fundraiser plant sale if starts are more your thing.


This event is in the garden on our plaza. Look for the white popup tents. This event happens rain or shine. We have plenty of tomatoes but feel free to bring your own, labeled with the variety, if you have enough to share.
