Why a tomato?
The tomato has become a symbol for the community food movement - in fact, tomatoes are actually the most popular produce grown in community gardens! If you are a tomato fan, you’ll know that the first bite of a tomato in the summer, especially fresh off the vine, tastes like nothing else!
Tomatoes grow together, just like our community, and there are thousands of varieties, just like people. Tomatoes grow on VINES, for Pete’s sake! It just makes sense to adopt it as ours.
While the VINES logo is changing, we aren’t changing who we are fundamentally. We are still a small, local non-profit organization committed to developing a sustainable and just community food system here in Broome County.
