it all began in a garden.
Founder and CEO Michael Heinrich was in his grandmother’s garden in Germany when he learned about the power of food. An avid gardener and medical doctor, his grandmother taught him how to use food to fuel his mind and body. Michael initially pushed the lessons to the back of his thoughts as he began a career in finance. Quickly he discovered corporate culture prizes productivity over health. Michael found this perspective flawed, remembered his grandmother’s advice and put his own healthful ideas into practice. They worked.
Research has since proven that health and productivity go hand in hand, and the more healthful foods people consume during the day, the happier, more engaged, and creative they become. Supported with research, nutritionists, chefs and a mission, Michael founded Oh My Green. Healthful food became the foundation of our company, just as it’s the foundation for growth, creativity, productivity and happiness in our work and lives. Today that mission has expanded to bring in wellbeing through meditation, mindfulness and community events. And Oh My Green is now garten, the German word for “garden.”
