The beautiful pink glow from Square Roots urban farms never gets old. 💕🌱 Our next Farm Tour in #Brooklyn is August 20th at 5:30pm. Join us! Repost @squarerootsgrow ・・・ Our herbs are grown in completely closed environments to allow us full control of their growing process. From CO2 in the air, to the number of hours of light, our farm team is able to recreate the best climate for each crop and grow high quality, delicious produce, 365 days a year from our Bed-Stuy farms. 👊🌱 📸: @pricklespetalsthorns #hyperlocal #indoorfarming #urbanfarming #urbanagriculture #urbanag #agtech #climatecontrol #verticalfarming #knowyourfarmer #knowyourfood #foodisthenewinternet

✨Magic ✨happens when you find the perfect team to make your vision come to life. That’s exactly what happened in Aspen with @506food506 @svennemand @sorenwesth506 for our annual @biggreen fundraiser last weekend. .506 treated our guests to the most sustainable and delicious dinner of their life. Søren and Sven worked hours on end to make the event a success and I cannot express enough gratitude for their energy, generosity, and brilliant food minds. 🙏They foraged the local mountain terrain to source and feed hundreds of guests beautiful, local mushrooms, edible flowers, and herbs. 🍄🌸🌿 Unforgettable meal with memories for a lifetime. #foodcollaboration #506 #aspen

Happy anniversary my love ❤️
I love New York City. After selling Zip2, my first startup that helped build the foundation for online maps and door-to-door directions on the Internet, I moved to New York and enrolled in culinary school. An intense experience that opened my eyes to the chef world. Now I cook much differently than the traditional French teachings of the school but it was such a formative time of my life. I’m thankful to have lived in New York City as a young chef and entrepreneur. ❤️🗽#nyc #cheflife
Visiting @squarerootsgrow today in Brooklyn, I’m so proud of the team and their rapid innovations to grow produce faster and more efficiently while tasting incredible. This Square Roots Basil, sold in over 70 local #NYC grocery stores, was grown in our cloud connected, climate controlled farms. Square Roots Next-Gen farmers collect millions of data points that they analyze to determine how changes in certain environmental parameters can impact factors like yield, taste and texture of the final product. More climates in more containers means more feedback loops, which means faster learning. Square Roots has learned to reduce the growing cycle of basil from 50 days to 28 days in the last year alone. 🍃👊
Kale & Apple Salad for Sunday dinner @nextdooreatery with organic baby kale, Granny Smith green apple slices, sunflower seeds, goat feta, and cider vinaigrette topped with a salmon fillet & lemon 😋🌱🍏🍋
Here’s an easy and gorgeous summer grilling recipe for wood roasted halibut with sliced lemon, black pepper, marjoram, and olive oil drizzled on top.🐟🍋🌿🔥 Place the pan straight on the grill, cover, and heat up to 600 degrees. Enjoy! Any questions?👇
Who can guess what this is?

You gotta friend in me. 🤠🎶 #happymonday
Earlier this month our non-profit organization @biggreen hit an incredible milestone: 200 Learning Gardens across Chicago Public Schools. We celebrated this achievement by honoring Antonio Gracias. Antonio and I have been friends for over 20 years. We have spent many holidays together but one holiday 9 years ago was different. I went down a ski-hill, broke my neck and was paralyzed for three days. Antonio was there by my side every minute. While in the hospital, I would tell him about my decision to change my career to focus on food. Specifically bringing Real Food to everyone. Obesity and diabetes is the epidemic of our day. A few months into my recovery, Antonio asked about my new career in food. He would not let me forget our conversations in the hospital! He wanted to know how we were going to make Chicago the #1 Learning Garden city in the world. Antonio opened up his most precious relationships in #Chicago, took major risks for Big Green and fought for Chicago Public Schools. Without any return, without any need for credit. Now, thanks to our incredible partnership with Antonio Gracias and the Chicago community, we celebrate 200 Learning Gardens across Chicago. Today, we reach over 120,000 with #realfood gardens literacy programs every school day. And, Chicago is the #1 Learning Garden city in the world! 🌎🌱 @chicago_public_schools @chipubschools
What is the perfect salad and one of our top-selling menu items across America, you ask? Answer: the Next Door Roasted Veggie Salad with organic arugula, roasted beets, 🔥 charred cauliflower 🔥, organic tri-color quinoa, carmelized onion, roasted mushrooms, toasted almonds & house lemon vinaigrette 🍋🌱😋 📸 @dailey_vernonhills @nextdooreatery
Dreaming of ______________.
In each Climate Container farm @squarerootsgrow we use the perfect spectrum of lights, or rather LEDs to grow local, delicious #realfood. Our next-gen farmers are clever about energy usage by turning on the grow lights overnight when there is excess energy in the grid. This keeps the cost per kilowatt hour down. During the day, the farms can be put into “harvest mode” — which dims the lights, and configures the climate to be the optimum condition for people at work.💡💓 #nextgenfarmer #farm #future #indoorfarming #pink #verticalfarming @americanexpress
Who’s hungry? This Slow Roasted BBQ Pork Spoonbread with a fried Lambright Farms egg, carolina-style bbq sauce, and cornbread is now on our weekend brunch menu @hedgerowbistros on Mass Ave in Indianapolis 😋🍳 #brunch #indy #woodroasted #realfood #nomnom
It’s an absolute privilege to cook for my family and friends. Food has always been my way to deeply connect with the people around me while tuning into my purpose. It’s also delicious. 🥦 #realfood
Today is Teacher Appreciation Day and I couldn’t be more appreciative of the nearly 30,000 teachers across America who we work with at @BigGreen to brighten the lives and enrich the minds of children every school day. Thank you! 🍎📚🍏 #teacher #grateful #teacherappreciationweek
These amazing team members @nextdooreatery exude our core values. They are #passionate #proud #prepared #positive #precise 👊
Kids say the funniest and smartest things... when you take the time to listen. Gardening, cooking, and eating together gives you the moments in between to interact and truly be present. 🌱
Look who visited me on the Chopped set! 📺 @christianamusk and I had just a little bit of fun 😂🍴
Guest judging on the @foodnetwork Chopped set! 📺🔪 What’s your favorite episode? Any tips for me?
Tell me about your food journey.
The relationship between food and the environment is complex but #realfood is one very big answer to a healthier, more sustainable planet. Know where your food comes from. Go to farmers markets (or @squarerootsgrow monthly farm tours!) to meet your farmers. 👨🌾 👩🌾 Learn how your food choices impact your environment. Patron restaurants like @thekitchen and @nextdooreatery where you can trust their sourcing practices. 🍴Don’t waste food. 🗑 Plant seeds with your family. 🌱Show kids how to garden. 🥕 Support non-profit organizations like @BigGreen that are focused on teaching environment and sustainability practices to our next generation. Do these things for yourself, your family, your community, and your planet. 🌎 #happyearthday #earthday #happyplanet #planetearth #knowyourfarmer #foodwaste #garden #plantaseedday
Cultivating the bunny in all of us is a good thing! #HappyEaster 🐰🥕
