We’re on a mission to help people grow their own healthy, organic food.
Rob Greenfield and the Live Like Ally Foundation have partnered to provide the seeds, literally, for an alternative to the industrial, globalized food system, and to encourage people to make a deeper connection with the earth. In 2018 we helped over 2,000 people across all 50 states of the USA to grow their own food. This year, we’re are back at it again, giving away free garden starter kits to 3,000 more people to help them grow their own food.
Many people have asked me why Cheryl and I chose to make our home in Orlando, Florida. I understand this question considering when most people think of Orlando, they think of Disney. Those that know me, know that I’m not into Disney. It also hosts more business conferences than any other city in the USA. Orlando often tops the list of being the most visited city in the nation and not for reasons I’m very involved in. It’s not thought of as the most environmentally progressive city. Nothing like a San Francisco or Seattle. Orlando is a large urban center, not the most nature-centered place.
And then there’s the state of Florida, one state that makes headlines for politicians that I sit on the opposite side of the spectrum to when it comes to my beliefs on humanity, environment, and the Earth as a whole. The state also makes headlines for making it illegal to live off the grid (not always the most accurate stories), toxic blooms of algae from Big Ag, and schools where it’s against the rules to use the phrase “climate change.”
Announcing my next big project!
For one year I will grow and forage 100% of my food, while living in the urban city of Orlando, Florida. Every single morsel of food, down to the salt, oils, and herbs will come from the land and I will harvest it myself. I will go an entire year without eating food from grocery stores (including the dumpsters), restaurants, or even taking a nibble of chocolate or a sip of tea at a party.
