    Making Food Personal Again

    in Environment

    Nikhil Arora – Co-Founder, Back to the Roots


    When Nikhil and his friend and now business partner Alejandro Velez, were a few months away from graduation at UC Berkley, they heard that they could grow gourmet mushrooms on recycled coffee grounds. Inspired by the idea of turning waste into fresh, local food, they experimented in Alex’s fraternity kitchen ultimately growing one test bucket of oyster mushrooms. With the ONE bucket and lots of support from their community, they made a life changing decision to forgo their investment banking and consulting job offers. Instead they became full-time urban mushroom farmers and haven’t looked back. Want to know how to grow fresh organic mushrooms in your home? Want to learn about a Water Garden that is a closed loop ecosystem where you can feed fish, feed the plants, and the plants clean the water? So do I! Join me to find out. This show sponsored by Chapman Automotive.
