The Green Mama Blog

Manda Aufochs Gillespie is the founder, director, president, and janitor, a.k.a. The Green Mama. She is the author of Green Mama: Giving your child a healthy start and a greener future and Green Mama-to-Be: Creating a Healthy, Happy, and Toxin-Free Pregnancy. In her 25 years in the field she has helped to green one of North America’s only urban ecovillages, one of Chicago’s largest daycares, a multi-million dollar residential project, a Guatemalan orphanage, and has been dubbed the “green guru” by the media, appearing on HBO, ABC, and CBC. She engages directly with hundreds of parents--of all backgrounds, nationalities, & incomes--through classes, consulting, and through writing. She publishes the popular, and can be found on social media as /thegreenmama, but prefers to be found riding her bicycle with her two kids and lots of kale piled in the back.
