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.)

Rob Greenfield on Money, Health Insurance, Age and Death (video)

People frequently ask me about health insurance, what I’ll do as I age, and my feelings on death. I’ve spent countless hours contemplating these themes of life. They are difficult topics to address publicly, but I feel that I owe it to all of you. In this video, I share much of my life design and philosophy relating to money, health, health insurance, age and death.

How to Downsize Your Life

This year I renewed my passport and they sent me back my old passport with ten years of memories and sentimental value. I practice non-materialism and non-ownership and strive to be present in life by owning few possessions. I decided to use this passport as an opportunity to share my tips on how to downsize and simplify your life.

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.

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.

Green Riders Doing Good Deeds across Europe- Week 7

This is a guest blog by Nicole Abrams from the Green Riders. She wrote this during the seventh week of the Green Riders tour as the Green Riders approached the end of their journey on July 31st, 2019.

The countdown to the end begins today, 10 days to the Black Sea. Ironically, I sit down to write this entry in a cafe named “Coffee Nicole” in Vidin, Bulgaria and unexpectedly learn how to write my name in the Cyrillic alphabet, “Никол”. The foreignness of this exquisite script feels less novel after riding these past weeks out of the Schengen region of Europe and into the Balkans. The pace of pedalling allows me the time to slowly sound out the words on the signage and compare the letters to my native alphabet. Now having crossed into Bulgaria, I realize I actually have some of these letters committed to memory, a testament to full immersion in a new culture and the plasticity of the human brain.
