The Perfect Gift for Tomato-Lovers (and isn't that all of us?)


I met the Tomato Independence Project people in Boise Idaho last fall, and fell in love with both their project and their tee-shirts.


Their goal: Making sure that 20% of food consumption in the Treasure Valley of Idaho and Oregon is local by 2020.  

Their method: For starters, encouraging everyone to grow their own tomatoes. 

Since the average American eats more than 90 pounds of tomatoes every year, it seems like an obvious place to begin. As they say in Boise, “life’s too short for tasteless tomatoes.” 

Their tee-shirts: Pre-shrunk, made of organic cotton, not available anywhere else. 

$29.99 each.
