Growing Green Awards
NRDC honors farmers, business leaders, and promoters of sustainable food
The food we eat every day is intimately connected to our health and the health of the environment. NRDC’s fifth annual Growing Green Awards celebrates the food producers, businesses, activists and bold thinkers who are making America’s food system healthier and more sustainable.
This year’s winners were selected from over 200 nominees in the categories of food producer, business leader, food justice leader, and young food leader by a panel of sustainable food and agriculture thought-leaders, including Michael Anthony, executive chef and partner at New York’s long-established and celebrated Gramercy Tavern; Gabe Brown, internationally-recognized soil health champion and 2012 Growing Green Award Food Producer winner; Marion Nestle, award-winning food policy author, professor and one of the nation’s most influential food thought-leaders; and Nell Newman, co-founder and president of Newman's Own Organics.
