Danielle Vogel opened Glen’s Garden Market to fight climate change.
Danielle Vogel comes from a long line of grocers, stretching back four generations. Before founding Glen’s, Danielle worked in government for ten years, as a policy adviser to both Democrats and Republicans in the House and Senate, as well as for the Department of Justice as an environmental litigator enforcing the Clean Air Act. When the effort to pass comprehensive climate legislation failed, she dedicated herself to finding a new, more incremental, way to address global warming: engaging her community in the Good Food movement. To date, Glen’s has launched over 80 sustainability focused food businesses, of which over 50 are woman-owned and more than 20 were founded by people of color. The store is solar powered and generates no food waste. Nearly everything on the shelves is sourced locally. Glen’s Garden Market is a truly activated community center. Danielle hosts a weekly radio show called Everyday Enviro about ways to reduce our personal carbon footprint, and she founded a business pitch competition called AccelerateHERdc, to identify, incubate and accelerate lady-led, sustainability minded, small-batch, local food companies.
