Event Description:
The Greater Des Moines partnership is excited to team up with the Iowa Women's Business Center to bring you First Fridays!  The goal of First Fridays is for the aspiring entrepreneurs and the people of Des Moines to hear from business owners and entrepreneurs who have helped shape the communities in which we live. The speakers are makers, store owners, movers and shakers, creators of regional or national brands, and all have stories that are uniquely their own.

Kerri Rush, “the wheatgrass girl” is the owner, farmer and chef at Fresh Wheatgrass Girl, LLC out of Carlisle, Iowa. She started growing wheatgrass in 1996 when her Mother was diagnosed with stage 4 colon, liver and lymph node cancer. After researching “alternative” healthy ways to give her immune system a boost she found it in wheatgrass and juicing. (her mother is now cancer free!) Kerri became hooked on all of the benefits of wheatgrass and her business started growing! She opened Fresh Cafe & Market and a Fresh Juice Stand at the Downtown Des Moines Farmers Market in 2006 (find her there every Saturday morning on the corner of 3rd & Court). She specializes in juices, smoothies, salads and anything that can be made with fresh produce. Kerri has become an award-winning Chef with a knack for making healthy taste great! Fresh Cafe and Market products are available on the website www.freshcafeandmarket.com or www.freshwheatgrassgirl.com. Look for the farm kitchen to be open for special events and classes this fall!
