RebelTomato.com was created in 2007 by the American Community Gardening Association with funding from the United States Department of Agriculture community food projects grants.
This site was created as a resource for people involved in youth gardening - garden leaders, educators, teachers and, most of all, youth themselves. The site is designed to serve as a one-stop-shop for useful, interesting information about youth gardening, and features several interactive components that are designed to get people exited and talking about gardening.
Seeds: Getting inspired, motivated, and dedicated. Benefits of community gardening, examples of community gardens and more.
Roots: Practical tools to help plan for the creation of a garden. Budgets, planning and more.
Shoots: Getting into the details of garden creation. Choosing plants, doing garden design projects and more.
Fruits: Enjoying and learning from the garden. Learning about food, nutrition, and science.
Harvest: Continuing to build and benefit from the garden. Tips about fundraising, evaluation and sustaining the garden.
