Michael Ferraro


Michael Ferraro is founder and president of Growums, a family-owned company dedicated to teaching children how fun, easy and important it is to grow and eat healthy food. A third-generation nursery professional, Michael coupled the lessons he was taught at the family garden center with what he learned during his 14 years in the financial services industry to create a program that introduces children to healthy foods and encourages smart eating habits. Today, Growums helps families get outside and work together in the garden, creating a greener world and giving kids a sense of pride in their accomplishments. Michael, his wife, and their two sons grow their own vegetables and herbs year-round at their Florida home. Growums continues to empower children by showing them how awesome it is to discover nutritious foods they can grow and enjoy—and become healthier for it.
