“Manic Organic” Rolling into Town

STEVEN SMITH (The North Port Sun — August 29, 2012)

Cheri Lee has put her passion for organic foods and products on wheels.

Lee, 35, owns The Manic Organic, a mobile organic produce stand. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will celebrate the grand opening of her new business at 4 p.m. Sept. 14 at the North Port Area Chamber of Commerce.

Originally from Miami and a North Port resident for seven years now, Lee said her focus will be on providing locally grown organic produce — along with organically produced soaps, candles, lip balms, T-shirts and reusable lunch bags — to the community. She also intends to promote sustainable living through the quality of her products and educational efforts, such as workshops on eating healthy and vegetarian cooking classes. She will operate out of a reconverted solar-powered school bus, which she will drive from location to location and invite customers inside the bus to shop.
