Growing Great Tomatoes

Torello Farm

No booking fee
Cancel up to 48 hours beforehand

Regular price $75.00

Anyone who has ever had the opportunity to sample Transition Farm’s tomatoes will understand just how exciting it is that Robin Koster-Carlyon returns to Torello to host this information-packed tomato workshop.

Since 2007 Robin, with her husband Peter, have grown magnificent biodynamic produce on their southern Mornington Peninsula property. More recently they have turned their hands to producing biodynamic/organic vegetables, herbs and flower seeds in the most ecologically responsible way for market gardeners and home gardeners alike.

Where: Dromana, Mornington Peninsula


Please Note:

All Providers of OHO Experiences have implemented extra precautions around distancing and cleaning practices in order to comply with guidelines provided by the Department of Health and Human Services.

The plan

In this workshop, Robin will take you through all the steps of how to grow stalky, vigorous tomato seedlings from seed, when to transplant including tips on how to get the earliest tomatoes and how to avoid the common pitfalls in growing tomato seedlings.

The fruits of your labour

You will take home all you need to know so you can grow your own tomatoes at home and understand the common pitfalls in growing tomato seedlings.

The kit required

Warm clothes, gardening gloves and an appetite for learning...lots! 

Using biodynamic principles, we grow a diverse range of produce including specialty potatoes, heirloom vegetables and tree-ripened fruit – all of which is available from the farm-gate shop, along with other local Mornington Peninsula produce.

For those who'd like to learn more about growing their own food, we run regular workshops at the farm sharing our knowledge and expertise.
