Heirloom Tomato Plant Thank You

As a token of our appreciation, FNLPM members have the opportunity to receive a free heirloom tomato plant!


What is an heirloom tomato? In simple terms, it is a variety that is open-pollinated and shared through generations via saved seeds. They come in unique colors, shapes and sizes, and are very flavorful.

 

  • Current FNLPM members who have not yet returned their order form can email friendsnlpm@gmail.com with their plant choice.
  • New FNLPM members can indicate their plant choice when they make their FNLPM membership gift online or by mail.

 

FNLPM members can pick up their free, pre-ordered plant or select one of the varieties still available at the New London Public Museum (406 S. Pearl Street, New London) on Saturday, May 7 (8 am to noon) or Tuesday, May 10 (1-3 pm). Additional heirloom tomato plants will be sold while supplies last with proceeds benefiting FNLPM.
