Started in 1999, Growing Great seems to be a not-so-distant cousins of ours! We love this school garden and nutrition education organization that focuses on “inspiring children and adults to adopt healthy eating habits.” So wonderful that their philosophy is also to share the awareness of where food comes from and how food has a long-term impact on our lives.

With a flair for spontaneity, pizzazz, creative excellence and her own unique sense of aesthetic grace and perspective, we have our very dear friend, Belinda (or B, to some of us). Although an incredibly accomplished professional and career woman, B’s down-to-earth approach and demeanor transcends all scenarios, communities and people. She manifests, in her day-to-day, the essence of the word “Zomppa” as demonstrated by her extraordinary commitment to creating sustainable and positive change for us and future generations to come. She’s asked for a dog every year since she was five. Check out Belinda’s work on global education research and coaching: www.hummingbirdrcc.com or more about her portfolio www.belindachiu.com.
