The leaves are sourced from local farms, and the food will be organic and locally sourced. It will also be able to provide healthy food options for its customers.

    The mission is to try and change how people think about food production. However, by creating and trading passion with other people who are more innovative and have better ideas, the individual can still gain something from experience.
