The Commonwealth Club presents a talk given by Amy Goldman, renowned heirloom seed expert, on September 10th in San Francisco.

From the Commonwealth Club website:

Acclaimed food writer, grower, and seed conservator turns her focus on the heirloom tomato in her new book. After the wave of recent tomato recalls, the reputation of the “pomme d’amour” or love apple seems to be in need of a boost. Amy Goldman has grown over 250 heirloom varieties in her garden in Rhinebeck, New York. She selected the 250 from 1000 seeds she trialed. A frequent guest on programs such as “Martha Stewart Living,” Goldman, who is dedicated to preserving agricultural bio-diversity, will give us a personal insight into growing and eating the perfect tomato.
