If you’re a Tufts student at all into plants, you’ve probably heard about George Ellmore. But if you haven’t, here’s why we’re excited that he’s coming tomorrow, Feb 29, at 9pm to Eaton 201 to talk about gardening in Massachusetts:

  • His bugs-get-stuck-on-Drosera-trichomes impersonation is flawless
  • He’d rather lose 10% of his produce to critters every year than get cancer from pesiticides in ten years
  • He’s managing to grow a small citrus tree in Massachusetts
  • He has a calendar of dates of when things sprout/flower/grow the best
  • He grows a mean garlic
  • Oh yeah, and he teaches Bio 14, Plants and Humanity, Plant Development, and Plant Physiology. So he knows his stuff
