At Grow Your Lunch, we believe a better food future is possible. We define our success using the triple bottom line - "people, planet, and profit." The organic farm and garden systems we create and manage are designed to fix carbon in the soil, reduce water and fossil fuel consumption and encourage biodiversity. Sustaining the status quo is not acceptable to us - the time has come to renew our commitment to future generations by regenerating the natural resources on which we so intimately depend.
