Boston is a city for innovators, and thanks to steadfast leadership from owner and co-founder Jessie Banhazl, Green City Growers is at the lead of the pack. Most recently, Jessie has been recognized as one of Zagat’s “30 Under 30: Boston’s Hottest Up-and-Comers.” This list highlights Boston food scene superstars, from presidents to managers to pop-up food truck chefs. Jessie, 28, co-created Green City Growers four years ago from the confines of her parents’ Wayland home. Since then, the company has grown beyond those initial walls to supply hundreds of clients in the Greater Boston Area with their own urban vegetable gardens.
Green City Growers is on the forefront of the Boston local food movement. Bostonians, as well as people all over, are recognizing the innumerable environmental, human, and economic health benefits of locally sourced food. As a vegetable garden supplier and educator, Green City Growers propels this trend; we can thank Jessie’s leadership for putting us on the proverbial local food map.
