Most people have a can of tomatoes in their cupboard - do you know that they probably have not have been grown here in New Zealand? Over spring and summer, join the tomato movement and propagate, plant, harvest and bottle Auckland-grown tomatoes.
Join the tomato movement! Grow and preserve your own tomatoes.
Start your own tomatoes from seed, or collect some seedlings from a local distribution point in October/November (see list below).
Fill in the form below (if you gave your details when you picked up your tomato seedlings, no need to register again).
Like Kai Auckland on Facebook to get all the Tomato Movement updates and share your tomato growing progress.
Grow your tomato plants at home or in your community garden. See the expert's guide to growing tomatoes from Organic Edible Garden.
At the end of summer, bring your harvest to a tomato saucing and bottling workshop and enjoy your bounty!
