=Erik Cutter – Erik Cutter is Managing Director of Alegría Fresh, a new start-up in Laguna Beach which utilizes high-efficiency hydroponic vertical farming systems to produce and distribute superior locally-grown salad greens and vegetables. Mr. Cutter has over 35 years experience growing food using organic techniques and is a leading pioneer in developing the use of hydroponic vertical farm technologies that are far more resource efficient than traditional farming processes. He has a background in Biochemistry and Oncology, and possesses a lifelong passion for creating haute cuisine using the finest ingredients. Mr. Cutter hopes to introduce youth and locals to the amazing benefits of consuming clean & natural locally-grown food. The company’s goals include connecting individuals with where their food comes from and how it is grown, influencing positive change in resource management, teaching healthy eating habits, promoting entrepreneurship programs and creating jobs in urban agriculture. The new venture has just completed Alegria Farm, a 1/2 acre interactive demonstration farm located at the Great Park in Irvine, CA.
