Volunteer Profile: Danika Sea

February 20, 2014

Volunteers are at the heart of Growing Chefs!, and we are so lucky to have many amazing members in our community supporting our program.  This year, we were so fortunate to have the incredibly talented graphic designer and photographer, Danika Sea, help us put together our 2013 Annual Report.  Meet Danika!


Tell us a little bit about yourself:

I have been a graphic designer and photographer for the last 12 years.

While working for LUSH Cosmetics, I became very interested in the company’s ethically sourced ingredients. At the time, I was also reading Michael Pollan’s books : The Omnivore’s Dilemma and Cooked. As I explore healthy, sustainable models of food production I hope to strengthen my connection to the people that grow the food my family and I eat.

Why did you decide to get involved with Growing Chefs?

I originally offered to photograph the incredible fundraising event – From Farm to Forks. The timing was off, but I learned more about the organization and decided that I wanted to help in other ways. I jumped on board to design Growing Chefs!’ first annual report for 2013.

Why do you think the program is important?
My daughter is four and will be entering kindergarten next year.  I am thrilled to know there is educational support through Growing Chefs!, so that students can learn more about where their food comes from and get excited about healthy, fresh produce!
Why is food sustainability and local and urban agriculture important to you?

It is crucial to the future of our environment, our health and supports local economy. I love having the opportunity to get to know local food producers and farmers. I am committed to passing these passions along to my daughter and to learning how to grow some of our own food as well.
