Boston Gardening Initiative to offer free 'TOM-ato' plants to Promote Urban Gardening
May 11, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: TreeHugger
As part of the Boston Blooms program Mayor Thomas M. Menino is partnering with the Boston Parks and Recreation Department and Mahoney's Garden Centers of Brighton to offer 2,012 free tomato plants to encourage Boston residents to take up urban gardening.
The varieties of tomatoes being given away are designed to thrive in containers as well as in the ground. No "formal" garden necessary - just lots of sun. We'll have instructions to hand out for first time gardeners.
