Freestyle Gardening

Freestyle Gardening Rob Greenfield Michael Scalli

Update:  The Freestyle Gardening Movement kicked off in summer 2014 but the movement is still in full force and we are still happy to cover your seeds to help you spread free food in your city!  We also plan to do another tour, perhaps 2016.  For now just start planting and make food free!  Read on for more… 

We’re spreading food gardens all over America and making food free, the way it used to be: naturally from the Earth.  We’re planting fruits, veggies, herbs, and wildflowers in and around your city, giving out free seeds, and funding community gardens. This is a grassroots movement that involves you! Come plant with us or reach out to us for free seeds or garden support in your area.

The Freestyle Gardening Movement- “Putting free food everywhere”

We are on a mission 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 want it to end up in your mouth!  Freestyle gardening is free of boundaries, business, and budgets.  Growing your own food and sharing with others puts the power back where it belongs, in your hands.  Quite simply the Freestyle Gardening movement is going to put free and healthy food everywhere!

We kicked off the movement in summer 2014 with a grassroots coast-to-coast tour.  Rob Greenfield cycled across America on his bamboo bicycle planting seeds along the way and Michael Scalli created gardens and planted seeds in select cities on the tour. We created community gardens, planted wildflowers, freestyle planted fruit and veggie seeds, and gave away funds to help others take action.  But that was only the beginning and are here to support you!

We want you to plant something! Here’s how you can get involved!

Plant on your own- If you want to grow food now your seeds are on us! Get vegetable seeds to grow for yourself and your community, or wildflowers to help the bees.  Just plant some stuff!

Start a Freestyle Garden- A Freestyle Garden is a place where food is free, healthy, organic, and sustainably grown. Freestyle Gardens create a culture that is less dependent on money and the industrial agriculture system that is currently harming our people, animals, and natural resources. These gardens use recycled materials and are lead by resourceful people wanting to be a part of positive change in America.  They can be at homes, schools, public spaces, businesses, basically anywhere that food will grow.  Sharing with everyone is a must with a Freestyle Garden!

We want to help you grow food and we’re going to give you the information, inspiration, and money to do so.  Get in touch with us to plant with us or on your own.  Email FreestyleGardening@RobGreenfield.TV to get started!

We support The Food is Free Project!  Follow them on Facebook for inspiration and information to help make food free, the way it should be!  Please start a front yard garden!

    This is a beautiful adventure of inspiration; filled with gardens, flowers and a revival of the kinship created when sharing food with ones neighbors. I love the journey you're on Michael and Rob.

    You Guys are Fabulous!!! Thank you for having the ability to see the need to educate people about growing their own food, about living within their means, about turning the TV off, talking to their neighbour, exchanging food, communicating, making a friend and producing living nutritious food that will make them feel wonderful. For our part it is not about asking you to come to us it is about doing it in our back yard and front yard and paying it forward.

    Love the idea. Hopefully full attention is paid towards planting only native, as well as maintaining good soil conditions.

    Dude, come to Niles, MI. Niles Community Gardens
    We're about 90 miles out of Chicago. How can I help? Please message me.

  • Laurel Bailey January 24, 2015   Reply →

    Hello, I think that you are starting something that will be totally awesome for everyone. Please consider sending me the seeds I would need to start my home garden. My available planting area us an acre. I wish y'all where headed to Dallas so I could participate physically with your project. Thank you for helping humanity. Laurel Bailey

  • Kristen Hardegree January 24, 2015   Reply →

    Y'all are coming to El Paso in June and I would love to be a part of what y'all are doing here!! There's hardly any organic food here and no one seems to care. I want to raise awareness in GMO free and organic food to the city. I have a passion for helping others and your mission has sparked a drive in me to make a difference for change in my community.

    As we are all scattered about the Country with many of the same goals this action comes as such Good News. By connecting in many ways we strengthen what each of us is doing individually or in small groups.
    Thank you for all you do.

    I am so impressed with your project and ideas – so glad I found this article, your website, and your other social media sites. You are going through my city and I can't wait to see what your plans are when the time gets closer! Hopefully I can participate!

  • Rose Moussa January 25, 2015   Reply →

    Any chance of coming to the Fort Lauderdale, Florida area? Your mission is awesome and I'd like to join with you.

  • Charon Mangino January 26, 2015   Reply →

    I want to know more! I'm in Tennessee!

  • Daryl Conner January 28, 2015   Reply →

    What about Monsanto who will be controlling all the seeds now?

  • Ana Leiva-Mora January 28, 2015   Reply →

    This is an amazing project! It would be great for you guys to come visit some of the Hudson area towns in new York. I'm in Hastings and could use the help in our community garden! Gd luck during your travels.

  • Glenna Merriott January 28, 2015   Reply →

    This is how change comes about, we will still need farmers but just growing a small portion of your own food organically will make a big difference.

    Just a few miles north! Come to Hamilton Ontario!
    Bravo Guys!@ Inspiring

  • Cindy Cavender January 29, 2015   Reply →

    How about Palm Beach County Florida. I don't see the Southeast on your list. Love the movement would love to join in. We have a lot of farmers markets and green markets here this would be even more awesome.

  • Dhal Glad January 29, 2015   Reply →

    This is great. I'm a truck driver and I have been randomly planting seeds across the country. Good to see there are others

  • Laura Pendergast January 29, 2015   Reply →

    What happened to Florida? Doesn't look like any of us made the list. Definitely sounds like a cool idea for our East coast area of Central Florida!

  • Lisa Ann Deloury January 29, 2015   Reply →

    you can get seeds anywhere especially your local feed store or nursery!! eat local support local the movement is awesome for those city people !!! but truly just dirt and a seed is all u need can get anywhere and do anywhere living organic GMO free

  • Lisa Ann Deloury January 29, 2015   Reply →

    just get seeds from local nursery :) plant in dirt and there u go its super easy

  • Lisa Ann Deloury January 29, 2015   Reply →

    yikes rght

  • Darleene Rams-Santiago January 29, 2015   Reply →

    Lisa Ann Deloury Yes, anyone can do this with dirt and seeds (getting seeds from a local nursery is a great suggestion, thanks), but having the tour physically in town would have a great rippling effect on the community. Hopefully they can fit it into their already busy schedule.

    Yes, anyone can do this with dirt and seeds (getting seeds from a local nursery is a great suggestion, thanks), but having the tour physically in the central CA valley would have a great rippling effect on the community. Hopefully you can see fit to drop by.

    You should start the movement in Canada

  • Shari Steele January 29, 2015   Reply →

    We are trying to get more edible gardens in school yards. It's hard for kids to get real food these days and so many parents are uneducated. These gardens give the kids an opportunity to eat real food all summer. It's a start!

  • Sylvia Prevost January 29, 2015   Reply →

    I could plant onions, my neighbor lettuce, his neighbor radishes and so on and on, we all share our crops and have the best non GMO healthy salads. What a great idea!

  • Lorrie Farris January 29, 2015   Reply →

    Love this idea and my husband and I would love to participate, but we are in Washington State. Sending seeds would be fantastic as we live in a 55 plus community and could easily share the harvest locally.

  • Rashadah Hasan January 29, 2015   Reply →

    What about coming to Birmingham Alabama!

  • Tamara Dobson January 30, 2015   Reply →

    Definitely buy organic and heirloom seeds! No GMOs!!

  • Shari Eisch January 30, 2015   Reply →

    Love it! See you in Milwaukee, WI

  • Constance Martha Taft January 30, 2015   Reply →

    You are inspirational! And so timely!!!! Power to the people

  • Pam Alt-henderson January 31, 2015   Reply →

    Fantastic! We need to take control of what is overly abundant crap they call food that is full of harmful chemicals and said to be healthy and natural. This is a great way to make healthier food available for free! Doesn't get better than that. Together we can help these great guys and their vision for a better life for us all. Help out where you can. If they aren't coming near you than do what you can to get started in your community.

    Its best to choose organic seeds from the southern states as the soil is better also sunflowers replenish soil from radiation

  • Rob Greenfield February 6, 2015   Reply →

    I'm not going to be able to make Florida this year but I will try to at some point. Ve the change in Florida please and start Freestyle Gardening!

  • Rob Greenfield February 6, 2015   Reply →

    We have to do what we can to take them down. Leading by example is the best way. Grow your own and don't buy ANYTHING with Monsanto's product in it.

  • Rob Greenfield February 6, 2015   Reply →

  • Andy Morris February 6, 2015   Reply →

    Rob Greenfield cool I'm new to gardening but nothing in my life has given me the sense of Self Reliance and Peace that growing my own edibles has. I've even started eating weeds!

  • Tim Myers February 10, 2015   Reply →

    Late to the party here. But hope you can swing through CO next year. We are already planning our freestyle gardening for spring. Should be a lot of good food around the Front Range of Colorado.

  • Chris Rice February 28, 2015   Reply →

    You need to put Davenport, Iowa on your next tour. We are planting a 9 acre community food forest on public land.
