Farm to Fork SF on carbon ranching at Stemple Creek and True Grass Farms, with The Perennial.

zeRO Foodprint The Perennial is a for-profit business with a non-profit partner: Zero Foodprint. The goal of Zero Foodprint is to help restaurants lower and offset their greenhouse gas emissions by offering environmental impact assessments and recommendations, and then facilitating fundraisers to purchase food-related carbon offsets. Our co-founder Anthony Myint has been working with Chris Ying (Editor in Chief of Lucky Peach) and Peter Freed (enviromental consultant) to develop a charter group of restaurants to participate in Zero Foodprint.

PERENNIAL GRAINS The Land Institute as a potential replacement to conventional wheat, which is an annual monoculture and requires large amounts of fertilizer and pesticide, ultimately degrading the soil. Our pastry chef, Nicola Carey has developed a Kernza bread that we love on its own or in conjunction with other menu items, and  we hope to champion Kernza as a delicious alternative to conventional wheat.

AQUAPONIC GrEENHOUSE Aquaponic agriculture raises plants and fish in a mutually beneficial system. It uses one tenth the amount of water and is four to six times more productive per unit of land than soil-based farming. The Perennial operates a 2000-square-foot aquaponic greenhouse in Oakland that converts food scraps from the restaurant into food for fish which in turn fertilize our vegetable and herb production. We hope our project will encourage similar closed-loop urban farms. >>MORE

Perennial farming initiative About six months after opening The Perennial, we launched a non-profit sister organization to support progressive agriculture from the production side. Our projects include compost drives for carbon farming, connecting farmers interested in regenerative grains, and connecting aquaculture with agriculture to create aquaponic systems. Please visit our website for more information and to contribute to our efforts to fight climate change through food.
