Hi, I'm Heather!
Growing Up Green is a local, momma run company focused on bringing the best of the best to you and your family without the hassle of internet shopping! I love finding new, exciting, natural products and I love getting a good deal. By combining both of those things with my training in marketing, communication, event planning, and just plain old being a momma of two active boys I have grown a unique business in our area.
I got so tired of having to pay shipping for items that were hard to find in our area, I decided to start selling them myself! My business started 5 years ago selling heirloom & organic vegetable plants at my favorite Historic Central Market. Around that time, I was downsized from my full-time marketing job. In an effort to make the market stand a full-time, year-round gig, the type of products I offered evolved. It started with beautiful Barefoot Books, then came the handmade handknitted hats. And then it hit me while having a play date that ended with me demonstrating cloth diapers to my girlfriends. One of them (thanks, Clare!) suggested I get an account with a diaper company and WHAM-O! Things really started to move & shake!
A little over a year later, The Plant Lady at Central Market suddenly became Growing Up Green! And not too long after that, I'm moving into a store, launching a new family cooperative, and moving out of my second home of market away from all our favorite friends & business partners. Yikes!
Now Central Pennsylvania has a local, knowledgable source for safe natural products for growing a happy healthy family. Stop paying for shipping! Stop trying to sift through a thousand sites that all look the same! Stop trying to blindly figure out which babycarrier or cloth diaper will work for you & your family! Stop by Growing Up Green today to see them in person and talk to someone who has been researching these things for 5+ years. If I have an item in my store, it's because I love it and use it personally for my family.
Hope to see you there!
