Emma BiggsGuest Speaker: Emma Biggs
Topic: Trials and Tribulations of a Teenage Tomato Grower

Fifteen-year old gardening dynamo, Emma Biggs, is passionate about tomatoes, growing more than 100 varieties at home in Toronto. In this presentation, Emma will share her many gardening challenges, including limited space, abundant pests, and a neighbor’s black walnut tree; and let us know how, despite all this, she ended up with more tomatoes than even she could possibly eat.

Emma Biggs, recent honoree of the 2020 Emergent Communicator Award, is the daughter of horticulturist and author, Steven Biggs. She is co-author of the book, Gardening with Emma, writes a monthly Gen XYZ blog for Harrowsmith magazine about growing fun edible crops, is co-host of The Food Garden Life Radio Show and Podcast, and a speaker at events both big and small.
