FindaForager.com – The Database to Find a Forager near you!

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.

Tour the “Rob Greenfield Recycled Cabin” in Costa Rica

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 Green Riders are back at it for the third tour.

I am so elated to see the good deeds continuing on. I won’t personally be on this tour, but I will be there in spirit and supporting from home. The following is an announcement of the 2020 tour and all the details one would need to get involved, written by the Green Riders team.

Announcing the Green Riders Summer 2020 tour, starting in the Pacific Northwest, cascading through the redwoods and hugging the Pacific Ocean the entire way!

Green Riders is a voluntarily organized cross-country cycling tour intended to promote a conscious, eco-friendly lifestyle and to leave every place better than we found it. We will be volunteering weekly at community gardens, permaculture operations, organic farms, homesteads and any other community projects. This provides a learning exchange between the riders and locals and we will use our social media platforms to promote the work they are doing. Along the route we will be picking up trash, donating fruit trees, planting regionally appropriate seeds and foraging. Many will also frequently dumpster dive for food to bring awareness to food waste.

Yaupon Holly- The Solution for Local Caffeine for The United States and Canada

Welcome to The Yaupon Brothers forest farm where they harvest yaupon holly!

Yaupon holly is North America’s only native caffeinated plant. It has the potential to replace coffee, tea and yerba mate in the USA and Canada. Most coffee and tea is shipped long distance, guzzling fossil fuels, but yaupon holly is a native, local source of the much loved caffeine buzz.

Simple and Sustainable Living in My Tiny House

Welcome to my tiny house in Orlando, Florida where I live simply and sustainably!

I built this tiny house along with friends for under $1,500, with nearly 100% secondhand materials and while creating near zero waste- just 30 pounds of trash! This setup allows me to live simply so that I can dedicate my time to the service of others and the earth. It also serves as a demonstration site for those who desire to live simply and sustainably.

Growing and Foraging 100% of My Food – Day 200 Video Update

For one year I am growing and foraging 100% of my food. That means no grocery stores, no restaurants and not even taking a nibble from a friends garden or pantry!

You might imagine me in the countryside living off the land or on a farm. On the contrary, I live in the urban environment of Orlando, Florida, in a 100 square foot tiny house that I built with repurposed materials. With no land of my own, I garden the front yards of people in my neighborhood and share the bounty with them. I take trips to nature to harvest salt from the ocean, coconuts to make coconut oil, wild yams bigger than my head and dozens of other wild foods. I also forage for food all over the city, where people walk by every single day, without ever noticing the abundance around them.

Food Freedom began November 11th 2018 and will go until November 11th 2019. This video was filmed on day 200 and released on day 208 of the project.
