Food Freedom- Growing and Foraging 100% of My Food for a Year

For one year I will grow and forage 100% of my food. That means no grocery stores, no restaurants and not even taking a nibble of a cookie or sip of beer at a party for an entire year. No coffee… no soda or sports drinks… no bread or pasta… no packaged food… no chocolate… no medicine from the pharmacy… You get the picture!

Why I’m growing and foraging 100% of my food for a year

As I write these words, I am thirty-four days into my yearlong project of growing and foraging 100% of my food. That is thirty-four days of knowing the source of every food that I consume. Thirty-four days of connecting with every morsel that nourishes my body. Thirty-four days of using my hands to harvest every single bite I will take. It is no doubt an immersive experience, and one that I think most of us can’t fully fathom because of the intricate web of the globalized, industrialized food system that we have found ourselves weaved so deeply into.

Food Freedom The Book Pre-order

I have been immersed in food for nearly a decade since I realized that the food I was consuming was consuming the planet I loved. Since that awakening I have been taking steps eat in a manner that is better for the earth, my community and myself.
This book will center around my yearlong journey to answer the burning question I’ve had since the beginning…
Is it possible in today’s modern society to step away from Big Ag and produce 100% of my own food?

Through this journey I will explore and share the problems with the broken food system. I believe we must know where our food is coming from and what its doing to people, planet and other species.
But this isn’t a book that will leave you hanging in the problems. This is a book of solutions. A book about what YOU can do!

I will share my work to help others grow their own food and highlight people, grassroots initiatives, and communities across the nation that are taking back control from the mega-corporations and putting the power back into the hands of the people… Us!

Anyone who reads this book will walk away equipped with the tools to take power back from Big Ag and gain food freedom. This will not be a lonely journey any of us have to take on our own. This is a book about coming together as community and working together to create happier, healthier and more sustainable communities.

100% of my proceeds from this book are donated to grassroots organizations working to create a sustainable and just food system. Learn more here.

Purifying Water with a Berkey Filter

People ask me all the time about how I purify my rainwater and also come to me seeking advice on how they can purify their own water. So, here’s my answer!

I simply collect the rainwater that falls onto the roof of my tiny house with a gutter that directs the rainwater into food grade 55-gallon drums. These I purchased on Craigslist used for $25 each. Rainwater harvesting is as simple as putting a bucket under your downspout or the roof drip line and letting the rainwater fall into the buckets. Truly that simple.

My Thoughts on Veganism… and Why I’m Not Vegan

“Are you vegan?”

That is a very common question that I receive, and I believe that it deserves a very thorough response. It’s a simple question, but typically there is a whole lot behind that three-word question.

The simple answer is no, I’m not vegan. Throughout my life, my diet has changed quite a bit, as it does for most people. In 2011, I started to wake up to the problems with our globalized industrialized food system and started to change what I was eating. Documentaries like Food Inc. and Earthlings taught me the truth about where the meat I was eating was coming from and the harm it was doing to the world, humanity, other species, and my own body. I was appalled by factory farming and resolved to remove it from my life. I didn’t do it over night, but over the next few years I transitioned to a more plant-based diet.

Rob Greenfield’s Commitment to Financial and Corporate Transparency

So many of our leaders and role models today are influenced deeply by money and corporations. So many of our politicians put corporate interests over what’s best for the people they are elected to serve. Celebrities are paid vast sums of money to sell their fans on stuff they don’t really need. Social media “influencers” have pages that are as much about products as they are about their life or what their page claims to be about.

We live in a world where we are constantly inundated with ads to buy, buy, buy. We are told that we’ll be happier with more stuff. We’ll be happier with luxurious items. Love, sex, and success will come to us if we can attain a certain image through material items.

I’m not running for office. I don’t work for the government. But I am your public servant.

I am not running for office. I don’t work for the government. But I do consider myself a public servant. I have designed my life to be of service to the people of my nation and the people of the world. As an American citizen, I am dedicated to using my life to improve the lives of those around me. I’ve watched our “public servants” over the last couple of decades, and I’ve learned a lot. From some, I have learned who I want to be. From others, I have learned who I don’t want to be.

I have put countless hours of thought into how I can mold myself to be of best service to my country and the world. And I have put far more hours into solid action, becoming the human I want to be, and leading by a positive example to truly be of service.

I feel today, just before midterm elections 2018, is a timely day to share my personal commitments as a public servant to my nation and the world.
