Annual tomato plant sale

The LLCC Environmental Club is holding their annual sale of heirloom tomato plants. Plants will be ready for pick up during finals week. Plants were a little slow to take off this year, so they will be a bit smaller than usual. You can still count on the same beautiful tomatoes and great heirloom flavor — a bargain, at any price! All plants are $1 each.

Please complete and send the attached order form to Becky Croteau via interoffice mail, or e-mail it to becky.croteau@llcc.edu.
