Tomato aficionados can choose from over 70 varieties of tomato plants this weekend at Cal Poly’s annual Tomato Mania plant sale, today and tomorrow from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
"Tomato Mania is a perfect example of what makes Cal Poly great," said Gage Willey, a senior agricultural and environmental plant sciences major. "This project throws a team of six students into a business – one that the community expects and relies on every year. That motivating pressure puts things into perspective and creates a real education."
The event will be hosted at the Horticulture Unit near the Poly Plant Shop (No. 48) on Via Carta Road off Highland Drive.
The tomato plants cost $7, with a quantity discount given for five or more plants.
