I only ate food that I grew or foraged for one year: Rob Greenfield AMA
Hello Reddit! Rob Greenfield here. I recently finished a yearlong project of growing and foraging 100% of my food. Last month an interview I did with BuzzFeed about my project was on the front page of r/videos and I saw that there were a lot of questions. I've decided to do an AMA to answer them! So please ask me anything!
A bit more about the project: For one year I grew and foraged 100% of my food. Every. Single. Bite. No grocery stores, no restaurants, not even a drink at a bar. Nature was my garden, my pantry and my pharmacy. I lived in the city of Orlando, Florida in a 100 square foot tiny house. With no land of my own I turned front yards into gardens and shared the bounty of food with the homeowners. Over the year I grew over 100 different foods in my gardens, foraged over 200 foods from nature and I grew and foraged my own medicine and vitamins too. The purpose wasn't just to grow my own food, but to do something attention grabbing to create a conversation about the reality of our food system and inspire and instigate people to take back control of our food from Big Ag and create food sovereignty in our communities.
UPDATE: It was nice to spend time with you all on here. Thanks for your questions. I hope I was able to be of service to you. I'll do it again in the future. Wishing health and happiness to you all. Love, Rob
