Tasty Tomatoes in Tympaki
TRADITOM partner Aktympaki held an educational and tasting event with school children from the 3rd Primary School of Tympaki, Greece on March 7th, 2018. This TRADITOM kids event taught its 45 young participants about the step-by-step process of reproducing tomatoes from seeds until harvest, while the children were given the opportunity to explore the rich biodiversity of tomatoes themselves by participation in a tasting. The kids were very enthusiastic about the project asking many questions about the different kinds of tomatoes, their different shapes and colors. This event stressed the importance of genetic material and visualized the aims of the TRADITOM project to future generations of potential researchers and tomato consumers.
