Mighty & Tiny: Microgreens from Green Girl Produce

Green Girl Produce was founded in 2012 by Emma Self Treadwell, and she continues to be the President, CEO, and
micro-wizard in the company. She saw a need for locally-produced microgreens, and she began growing “micros”
in the parking lot of Sweet Grass/Next Door, with the support and encouragement from Chef Ryan Trimm
(member of Across the Board Restaurant Group) where she was working at the time. She moved the operation
to a corner office in the Emerge Memphis building while she perfected her system and experimented with the
tiny plants. With the move inside, Green Girl became Tennessee’s first vertical indoor vertical farm. Today, the
company has expanded by adding more staff and moving into a larger (and spotlessly clean) warehouse space,
owned by the other members within the Across The Board restaurant group, Craig Blondis and Roger Sapp.
Jennifer Payne joined her last year, and together they are working to grow the company along with microgreens.
“I am the ‘how,’” Jennifer said, “and Emma is the ‘wow!’”

In the Kitchen with: Carmen Bond

When the owner of a premiere home and gift store prepares for the holiday season, she starts early and she has a collection of magnificent pieces for celebrating the season. For Carmen Bond, owner of Social: A Shop for Gracious Living, she began her holidays with a fresh start including new decor, tableware, and new recipes while keeping with meaningful family traditions from her Christmas past. “This is a new beginning. Out with the old, and in with the new!,” Carmen smiles with a wink. This will most likely be her last year to spend Christmas in her home of 21 years – it is going on the market (at press time, it was not officially listed). She is looking forward to the holidays, and one last celebration in her home surrounded by her children, their spouses, her new beau Nash, plus a multitude of family and friends. Part of her celebration transformation will include all her new, favorite finds, many of them from where else, Social. Drinks will be served in new barware by Artel. For more formal dinner gatherings, her table will be set with Sasha Nicholas (locally available exclusively at Social), and for a casual evening in, she will be using her new place settings from Montes Doggett and Vietri.
