Tom the Tomato Plant 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.
