We love growing things to eat, and there are lots of great growers here in Phoenix. But you might not know Monika Woolsey. She's a dietitian and head of Hip Veggies, an educational collaboration between artists and food professionals that aims to promote locally grown produce, support local artists, and raise awareness of and support local hunger-relief organizations. She's a forager, gardener, and fearless leader.
Hip Veggies is probably best known for partnering with local artists to create awesome bags, perfect for transporting your produce. We were lucky enough to interview Woolsey, and she divulged the lineup of bag artists in 2014.
