About Alison Burgos and Michelle Gaber, SEED Co-Founders:
Alison Burgos and Michelle Gaber, the co-founders of Seed Food & Wine Festival, are partners in life and business. Alison has produced destination weekends and events in Las Vegas, Orlando, Miami, Atlanta, Charlotte, and Puerto Rico since 1998, attracting over 30,000 people annually. Michelle is a longtime entrepreneur and philanthropist. A year after Alison and Michelle met, Alison was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disease. She was confined to a wheelchair from 2011 to 2012, then underwent knee replacement surgery, followed by six months of physical rehabilitation—all in order to be able to walk again. Michelle already lived a plant-based lifestyle, but the experience made both women delve further into a more conscious, healthy way of life Alison began consuming more fruits and vegetables, until adopting the plant-based diet she eats today. The changes she made allowed Alison to wean herself from medication, lose more weight than she ever had, feel more energetic and bring her inflammation levels down to remission level. Realizing the drastic and positive results of Alison’s lifestyle changes, Gaber and Burgos saw the opportunity to teach others how to eat their way to better health. Highly aware of the burgeoning food scene in Miami and inspired to create an inclusive event aimed at everyone, and not just vegans, Gaber and Burgos felt the moment was right to organize the first-of-it-kind plant-based food and wine festival to enlighten, educate and celebrate.
