Stanford nutrition guru on how to change our food system

Christopher Gardner is refreshingly down-to-earth, and optimistic about the sustainable food movement. And he practices what he teaches — he grows his own vegetables in a backyard garden, and also recently acquired five laying hens.

He champions sustainable food on campus, and spearheaded the Stanford Food Summit in 2010, an annual event that brings together professors, students, and community-based food groups and organizations in a lively forum about food systems issues. Last summer, he also helped to organize a summer camp at Full Circle Farm in Sunnyvale, Calif., where kids learned about vegetables. And then they cooked and ate them. And liked them.
