2x Partners: Most Amazing Takeaway from FINANCING FARM-TO-FORK workshop today

Our Andy Whitman had the privilege of hosting a panel with Gary Hirshberg (Stonyfield Farm), Irv Cernauskas (Irv & Shelly’s Fresh Picks) and Michael Bashaw (Whole Foods). Plus he co-hosted the afternoon “Skill Building” session with fellow Kraft Foods alumnus turned local food guru-in-the-making Kathy Nyquist.

A highlight though was meeting and listening to Will Allen, former American Basketball Association star, former sales executive and currently Founder & CEO of Growing Power (a farm and community food center in Milwaukee, WI).  Will is widely considered the leading authority in the rapidly expanding world of urban agriculture.
