Dr Ken Street is the founder of Spirulina Grow Co. He is an Australian Agricultural Scientist (BSc, PhD) who has spent most of his career working in international research and development. The primary focus of his work was to collect and conserve humankind’s ancient agricultural biodiversity. Being at the forefront of international efforts to collect and conserve mankind’s agrobiodiversity attracted the attention of one of Australia’s best documentary makers  –  the result is an educational and entertaining multi-award-winning documentary “Seedhunter” –  a topic that’s vital for the future of the planet – finding the little seeds that may help save the world from its greatest ever crisis – a global food shortage.


Through his work, Dr Ken Street has developed a keen interest in global food security and sustainability which sparked his passion for Spirulina.


Dr Street now resides in Perth Western Australia – he is Spirulina Grow Co founder and is currently working collaboratively with the Algae Research and Development Centre at Murdoch University where he is an Adjunct Professor.

What We Know



Civilization as we know it is at a tipping point.

Further, we are dying in unprecedented numbers from out-of-control diseases that are mostly preventable. The medical-industrial complex is invested in cures (many of them only marginally effective) rather than a preventative measure that includes appropriate diet and lifestyle choices. It is more profitable for them to feed us with pharmaceuticals than to prescribe the use of foods with properties that have medicinal benefits or promote the avoidance of foods and eating habits that are the root cause of our most “popular” diseases.
