Robert Henrickson is the founder and President of Earthrise Farms, one of the world's largest growers of spirulina. So, what is spirulina, and why is it important? Sprirulina is really an amazing whole food that can be grown in almost any climate. People can survive on little more than spirulina alone, due to its high concentration of vitamins, minerals and protein. It has gained popularity in recent years, and has been touted as one of nature's most perfect "whole foods". That alone would probably not be enough to pique my interest though. The most exciting part about this food is that its recent "discovery" by modern man could help to ease or eliminate food shortages around the world. It is an extremely nutritious whole food that takes up minimal space to grow and store, and results in absolutely no soil erosion or damage to the environment. No pesticides or chemicals are necessary to grow it, and cultivation has been successful in a variety of third-world countries. In this book, Henrickson not only gives the reader a mountain of information on the food itself, but outlines his vision on how this whole food could someday help to feed millions of hungry people across our planet, as well as save our environment in the process. It's nice to know that someone is trying to use science to change our planet for the better.
