Meet The Team

“I look forward to supporting your business to grow and as a gardening and cooking enthusiast, helping you fuel your passion for filling your table with healthy, good food.”

 – Sharon McCormick, Poppy Innovations founder & CEO

Poppy Innovations was founded in 2012 by Sharon McCormick. An agripreneur at heart, Sharon welcomes the chance to work with organizations that are looking for new, innovative ways to grow. After a career spanning two decades and including success in the private, non-profit, and public service sectors, Sharon shifted her priorities to focus on her family, her community, and her greatest passion – gardening and food. Now Sharon shares her management skills and go-get-‘em attitude with organizations looking for business solutions and with adults and children through interactive education and activity-based programs across the food spectrum, what she calls ‘from gate to plate.’
