Why I Support GrowingGreat
by Ellen Rosenberg
On May 2, 2015, GrowingGreat will honor me and my husband, Mike, at their annual Farm to Table Benefit. I hope you will join me in supporting this outstanding organization and enjoy an unforgettable night under the stars featuring celebrity chefs and exquisite wines. Since GrowingGreat was founded in 1999, supporting their mission has come naturally to me because I believe in what they teach and I’ve seen the benefits firsthand. I so appreciated my boys having the opportunity to learn where food comes from and how it affects our bodies and minds. As parents, it was inspiring for Mike and me to see our sons’ enthusiasm about what they had learned from their GrowingGreat docents. I am very grateful to Co-Founder Peggy Curry for her passion. I am also grateful for the thousands of volunteer hours South Bay parents have contributed over the years to achieve GrowingGreat’s mission to empower every child to grow up healthy through science-based garden and nutrition education. I share this honor with all those other parents! How many of us have had a child try a new food for the first time because of GrowingGreat? Our children understand that eating healthy food is delicious, not just something you do because you should. GrowingGreat exists because of the generosity of parents like us. I hope you’ll join me on May 2 to show our thanks for all they do to keep our kids healthy.
