A son of displaced farmers, Michel Nischan grew up with a deep appreciation for sustainable agriculture and those who work the land. As a professional chef for more than 30 years and advocate for a more healthful, organic and sustainable food future, he has built on those childhood values and become a catalyst for new initiatives in local and regional food systems. He is the owner/founder of Dressing Room: A Homegrown Restaurant, and head of Wholesome Wave Foundation, a non-profit organisation that aims to overhaul the nation’s food system and increase the access to affordable, healthy, locally grown food.
