September 2010 – North San Diego County,Califonia—groOrganic™ welcomes Maripat Lawrence as the proud owner of their North San Diego County groOrganic franchise. The groOrganic™ concept of enabling environmentally conscious consumers to install and maintain customized organic vegetable gardens and vineyards is now available in locations across the US. Their approach is by far the most convenient way for newcomers — who make up 21% of the 43 million homes with home gardens in 2009 – to begin organic gardening at home.
groOrganic is a family of companies committed to cultivating healthy lifestyles in every community they serve with their passionate and dedicated team of Certified groOrganic Gardeners who offer their personal pledge of excellence. They believe there IS an economical, healthy way to eat organically and can provide that with the sense of self sufficiency for you and your family.
groOrganic supports small American businesses and they proudly offer superior merchandise from only the best USA suppliers. Their promise is to support the local business community by first seeking out custom hand-built and hand-painted products from local contractors and artists.
They offer a diverse gardening curriculum for adults, children, and those with special needs who can benefit from educational and horticultural therapy programs. Whether you live in a house or apartment, you can enjoy the benefits of home grown organic produce. Their custom-built raised planters and space-saving barrels are designed to give you the advantage of incorporating vegetable gardens into your landscape, patio, or balcony.
The organic gardening company has a growing list of fans and customers, thanks in part to the “Slow Food Movement” and its devoted supporters, and word-of-mouth generated by people all over the country. Even Hollywood celebrities have generated a lot of buzz for groOrganic, many of whom enjoy their own groOrganic gardens and are excited about the prospect of having their very own organic produce in their yards. groOrganic has been featured in articles, blogs, and on the television shows “The Biggest Loser”, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”, “Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood”, and “Access Hollywood”.
Maripat Lawrence has grown up in San Diego. She graduated from Torrey Pines High School in Del Mar and went to college at SDSU. She currently lives in San Diego with her husband and her 14 month old daughter. Her husband is a professional baseball player who played for five years for the San Diego Padres. Since having her daughter she has become more aware of what she feeds her family. Maripat says “groOrganic is a good way to bring fresh food into our homes and teach families how food grows, I believe it will help people appreciate food more if they understand how it grows and that they took part in helping it grow. As a groOrganic franchisee I hope to help people take an old idea (gardening) into the new way people are looking at what they put into their bodies.”
As a groOrganic Franchisee, you will install and maintain home organic gardens in backyards in your territory. This is wonderful news to those of us who wish to begin a healthier lifestyle and rid our families of the chemicals that are being put on and in our produce. In addition to the numerous health benefits, a groOrganic garden offers environmental and financial benefits, educational opportunities, disaster preparedness, and many social aspects that affect our communities in a positive way. We believe the groOrganic concept can be spread through franchisees throughout the nation and beyond.
