CSUN-al Gardening Series: Tomatoes

2:00 pm - 4:00 pm - TBA
http://www.csun.edu/botanicgarden/

"ToMAYto." "ToMAHto." Hybrid. Heirloom. Early Girl. Better Boy. Dr. Wyche's Yellow. Dorothy's Green. Black Prince, Mountain Princess. Determinate. Indeterminate. Fruit. Vegetable â¦

No matter what they are called or how they are classified, tomatoes are considered by many people as among the most rewarding of home-grown foods. However, the many varieties available to the Southern California gardener can be a confusing assortment of names and designations.

California State University, Northridge's next CSUN-al Gardening Series class will offer help to home gardeners in determining which variety, or varieties, are right for them.

Scott Daigre, proprietor of Tomatomania and owner of Powerplant Garden Design, will share his strategy on tomato growing, provide tips on maximizing yield and explain why some tomatoes have letters after their names.

Registration for the free class is required. Email botanicgarden@csun.edu to request a space in the class or for more information. Driving and parking instructions, as well as the class meeting location, will be sent upon registration.

Thursday, March 7th is the 8th Annual Technical Symposium hosted by the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health, its alumni chapter, and its student association. Nanotechnology (one nanometer is one-billionth of a meter) is an emerging industry that involves the control of atoms and molecules to create new materials with a variety of useful functions. As concerns grow about their effects on living organisms and the environment, the symposium brings together experts to shed light on these tiny chemical messengers. Among the line up of nationally recognized speakers is Tony Machado (EOH) who also organizes the event with the Alumni Chapter President, Bob Finkelstein.

The Institute for Sustainability is hosting its annual Water Day event on Wednesday March 20th in the USU Northridge Center (World Water Day- the official UN-designated day dedicated to water issues is March 22nd) from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm. There are two separate sessions (to coincide with class times), from 11:00 - 12:15pm and from 12:30 - 1:45pm.

In the first session, you will have the opportunity to see if you can taste the difference between bottled versus tap water. We will also show (part of) the documentary "Tapped" which deals with the issues of bottled water and privatization of water, and have a facilitated discussion of issues surrounding bottled water including the results of the taste test.

In the second session we will discuss water for the developing world and will be hosting a presentation by the Thirst Project (www.thirstproject.org). Is the water safe to drink? Not for 1 billion people! What can YOU do? The Thirst Project raised $2.6 million and have given 100,000 access to clean water. Thirst Project was started by students just like YOU!

At 7pm in the USU Theatre, we will be co-hosting a film screening of "Over Troubled Waters" with Food and Water Watch. An engaging discussion with experts will follow the film. Find out about the state of out water and what you can do. The fate of California's water is in your hands!

Please come and invite your students to join us for this educational event.
