Gardener and educator Sameer Tyagi invites the public to his Heirloom Tomato Maze, made with 370 hay bales, 200 heirloom tomato varieties, and 1,800 plants. Sample a selection of tomatoes, dig in for a gardening workshop, and pick fresh tomatoes, herbs, and veggies. Instead of soil, Tyagi uses partially decomposed hay bales to grow tomatoes, a technique that minimizes weeding, tilling, bending, and soil-borne disease. At the farm, gardening materials as well as local produce, eggs, and olive oil are available to purchase. Entrance cost: $5 per person (family discount available). Workshop cost: $20.
