Food Freedom

A Year of Growing and Foraging 100 Percent of My Food and Why It Matters

Ten years ago, Rob Greenfield woke up to the destruction caused by the industrial food system and Big Ag. Since then he has been deeply exploring food sovereignty—often through immersive activism—which led to his most recent quest: could he step outside of the food system and grow and forage 100% of his food?

In Food Freedom, he shares his adventures of living without grocery stores or restaurants. Nothing packaged, processed, or shipped—not even multi-vitamins, supplements, or spices. Within Orlando, Florida, he turned lawns into abundant gardens, grew over 100 species of food, and foraged over 200. Follow Rob on an emotional journey as he explores:

  • Growing and foraging to gain an appreciation for local food
  • The industrial food system that likely brought you today’s meal
  • How communities are taking back control of their food and creating food sovereignty
  • Solutions for how you can grow your own and gain food freedom.

The good food revolution is not a lonely path. Millions have embarked on the journey and are waiting for you to join them. Question your food. Get uncomfortable. Be empowered to change the narrative!
