Ran is the founder of Fresh City. He believes city farming can change the world by re-introducing all of us to how real food is made. Some of his formative childhood experiences include his grandmother’s stories about growing up on a Kibbutz, feeling democracy awaken in his childhood home of South Africa and his mom’s stuffed peppers. Ran has spoken on food issues before hundreds of audiences. Before founding Fresh City, Ran practiced investment law in New York City for several years. Ran is a board member of FoodShare.
Ran is the adoring father of a baby girl who, so far at least, loves her veggies.
