Our Team 

Sherry Sobey – Founder/Manager

Sherry Sobey is the sole owner of Generation Green & Acorn Cafe in The Exchange.  She is also the co-founders of the MADE to Grow Project.

Sherry grew up in various places throughout Canada, but feels Winnipeg is where she was meant to live and raise three boys! The change of the seasons, the lakes, and the prairie sunsets are a few of the things that make Manitoba her favourite place to be!

Sherry always felt a spiritual connection when in nature, and says it is where she feels most grounded, most connected and most inspired.

Sherry truly believes life is a journey that is meant to be enjoyed, experienced, and that nothing happens by accident. After a major health scare in 2007, Sherry made a conscious effort to remove the blinders and begin educating herself in order to start living a more natural, healthier life where the focus would be on prevention.  What a blessing that scare became, as it led her where she feels she was always meant to be!

Opening a “green living” retail store in 2012 was a way to not only make it easier for others to find alternatives, but also a way for us all to continue growing and learning!

“What we are putting in, on and around our bodies greatly affects all of us.”

CELINE-520x352.jpg

Céline was born in Ontario and moved a lot while growing up, finally ending up in Winnipeg in 2001 to complete her University degrees. She has always had a huge love for animals, trying to rescue the strays and comfort the hurt.

Spending many years on a hobby farm as a child gave her a great appreciation of the life of farm animals. Being vegetarian for many years she made the decision to go vegan overnight in 2004. In 2005 she went to New Orleans to aid Animal Rescue organizations days after Hurricane Katrina devastated the lives of many people and animals.

She is a single mother to an amazing little "weegan" who is the joy and light of her life. Her son shares her passion and love for veganism and they love spending time together in the kitchen. They enjoy spending a lot of time together in nature, camping and going on many adventures They try to travel as much as possible often ending up in Boston and Phoenix. In the summer they enjoy road trips visiting small Manitoba towns to see what they can find.

She began dabbling with making vegan cheese in 2014 and after many years of trial and error connected with Sherry and a beautiful relationship was created. She feels very fortunate that she can spend time in a kitchen sharing her love of veganism with others through her cheese. Each small batch is made with a lot of love and pride. She is overjoyed to be a part of the Generation Green team!

Having grown up in Winnipeg, Saron can tell you it’s ins and outs. Saron loves the people here but most of all the art scene. Saron has always been in love with the arts as far back as she can remember and has started the process of creating her own as well!

Saron identifies herself as a creative because she finds herself to be multidimensional and cannot limit herself to one form of media.

Saron has always felt at peace in nature and looks to the outdoors for inspiration in her art. Saron finds nature to be her safe haven and after studying the condition of the environment decided to commit to living a conscious lifestyle. Writing outdoors and going on long walks are some of the things Saron enjoys and cannot imagine a world where these things would be compromised due to humanity’s careless actions.

Calling herself a Barista is one of Saron’s prides. She loves steaming milks to perfection and enjoys putting people on to new drinks. Saron can go on explaining the differences between a long pour and a ristretto or a latte and a cappuccino.

Some people love wine tasting Saron loves chai tasting!
