The Free Seed Project may only be available inside of the United States for now, but folks all across the world are finding inspiration from this movement! Lucas, a Switzerland native, created a local free seed project in his community called “Samenspende” after learning about our program.

Find a Forager!
Brought to you by Rob Greenfield
Along with my team, I am currently creating a database to help you to find a forager near you.
There is a massive number of people who are desiring to connect with the land and learn how they can work with the plants. There are a lot of online resources and books available to begin foraging (and we are creating a guide for this) but I believe the best way to begin foraging is by learning from a knowledgeable forager in your area. Many local foragers are out there, but they can be hard to find for people who have just awakened to this possibility.
In October 2019 I received a notification from YouTube that I had earned an award for passing 100,000 subscribers. I’m not a material guy, so at first I thought I’d say no-thanks to the award. But then I realized I could share it with one of the people who follow my channel, the reason the award exists in the first place! I wanted to give the award to someone who would find it really meaningful.
I decided to produce a video and ask people to comment with how my life and my YouTube channel had positively impacted them. I would chose one person from the comments to receive the award.
I have simplified my life down to just 44 possessions. Everything I own is sitting in front of me in this photo.
The possessions I do have serve a purpose, allowing me to live simply and sustainably, meeting my basic needs and helping me to inspire others to live in harmony with our earth, our global humanity and all species.
This video shows you the off the grid zero waste haircut (and beard-cut). No electricity needed, no cheap electronics, no money spent and absolutely zero waste!
Introducing the “Rob Greenfield Recycled Cabin!”
A few years ago I was invited to a place called Saint Michael’s Sustainable Community in Costa Rica. It sounded like a great place, so I accepted the invitation and really enjoyed my visit. After our time together the founder, Justin Dolan, became inspired to build a tiny house out of almost exclusively repurposed materials. He named it after me, because he was inspired by my work for a more sustainable and just world. In this video I give you a tour of the cabin.
This cabin is available for you to rent year-round and there are other tiny houses on the community for rent as well.
(I’m not involved in that in any way. I’m simply sharing this because I think it’s a worthwhile place to visit experience an interesting example of permaculture.)
The zero waste movement is spreading across the United States.
Across the nation people are waking up to the many environmental crises we face and taking action. I have co-produced a new video with The Story of Stuff Project to showcase examples of people, initiatives and organizations that are working to improve their communities and set an example for what others can do in their communities.
