We believe that every American citizen not only deserves, but CAN eat a healthy, nutritious, and delicious diet. But we are aware that for many Americans there are barriers that stand in the way of this. 50 million Americans are food insecure. 23 million Americans live in food deserts. More than 45 million Americans receive financial assistance for food. Enough food is wasted to approximately feed another entire American population. A third of all Americans are obese. Nearly 10% of American have diabetes. Food corporations, lobbyists, and advertising misguide Americans who are trying to eat healthy, while putting profit over their customers’ health. Lastly, there is a plethora of social barriers for millions of Americans.

How to Freestyle Garden

Freestyle Gardening is spreading food gardens all over the United States and making food free, the way it used to be: naturally from the Earth. 

The mission is to make food simple, free, and growing everywhere – in the cities and the countryside, at our homes and in our schools, in vacant lots and on open rooftops, down the streets and up the walls. And once that fresh, healthy food is grown, we eat it! Freestyle gardening is free of boundaries, business, and budgets. Growing our own food and sharing with others puts the power back where it belongs, in our hands.

How to Brew Your Own Kombucha

Kombucha is Nature’s Healthy Soda and one of my favorite things on earth. I got turned onto it a few years ago and have been consistently brewing my own ever since. It’s amazing how easy it is to make considering I used to buy everything in a package from big box supermarkets. I had no clue how to make anything that didn’t come in a package. Making my own Kombucha was a simple yet huge step in living with more happiness, health, and freedom. It’s completely eye opening to learn that just about everything at the grocery store can be made very easily at home. When I make my own food from scratch, I know what is and isn’t in it. No long ingredient lists with mystery ingredients for me.

Growing Power: Day 56

Today I finally visited Growing Power which is something I’ve been wanting to do for years now since I first saw them featured on the documentary Fresh. They are a 1% for the Planet recipient and through my Off the Grid adventure across the United States I am raising funds for them to keep on doing the amazing things they are doing. They have grown into a huge movement over the last few years so the amount I raise for them will be a tiny fraction of what they receive each year but I know they will put whatever I give to them to good use.
