DisruptiveDiner: PSF Bob Henkel

Bob Henkel wants to share his thoughts on how packaging, processing, shipping, waste and chemical fertilizers can be radically reduced in our food system. His work around the country working with models of permaculture and "edible food forests" points to opportunities in perennial farming systems to have savings and healthy food flow to consumers while real and sustainable profits are earned by producers and entrepreneurs. Prepare to think differently about how food can nourish us physically, economically and socially.
