Tom the Tomato Plant by Dave Carroll: A story of compassion
“Tom was nothing until he had a home. Then, he discovered everything.”
Tom the Tomato Plant by Dave Carroll is the journey of a smaller-than-average tomato plant named Tom. When all the other plants at the farmers market were claimed, Tom remained alone, dejected and lost. Until one day, a little girl persuades her family to give Tom a forever home. The story evolves into an inspiring tale of self-actualization, gratitude, resilience and living on purpose. Tom the Tomato Plant is a story of compassion and the transformative ripples that are created with small acts of caring-on-purpose.

The songs from Dave’s most recent recording, Until One Day were intentionally penned as an alternative to the prevailing sentiment of polarization in society.
