Tomato Day

  • Aurora Transportation Center 233 North Broadway Aurora, IL, 60505 United States (map)

The concept is simple, give a child a tomato seedling to plant in a container or yard, encourage them to tend it, watch it grow, blossom and bear fruit.  The rewards to the child are long lasting and the countless benefits of gardening are life changing, not only for the kids, but for entire families as well as future generations. The first 1000 kids will receive a FREE Tomato plant to take home and nurture. In a short time they will bloom and then produce delicious and nutritious cherry tomatoes, all the while teaching valuable lessons. Tomato Day is held annually in May at the Farmers Market Preview.
