How algae microfarms can help transform our food culture by growing abundant healthy food in a very small area and extend the growing season, affordably and profitably. Algae are 20 times more productive than conventional food and are well known as nutrient dense superfoods with valuable health and medical benefits. Over the past 30 years, large farms have grown algae for food, feed and fuel for thousands of useful products. Now an era of microfarms is emerging. Algae microfarms can empower people to grow healthy food in their own community for food security and self-sufficiency. Robert Henrikson founded one of the world's first and largest algae farms 35 years ago. Now the time has come to introduce the algae microfarmers who are growing algae for healthy foods in their local communities.
