Could you survive a year (or even a week) with no grocery store, no restaurant—not even a “nibble” from a friend’s pantry?
Rob Greenfield is on a mission to do just that. In this video, he talks about his year-long project to grow or forage 100 percent of his food by transforming the yards of six community members into gardens.
We’re guessing not many of you will want to take growing your own food to the same extreme as Greenfield—who even presses his own coconut oil and boils ocean water for his own sea salt.
But the other part of Greenfield’s mission is to inspire and help others grow at least some of their own food, through initiatives like his Gardens for Single Moms, Community Fruit Trees and Free Seed Project—and by documenting his experiment.
