Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance -

  • A new film features environmental activist and humanitarian Rob Greenfield and his quest to grow and forage 100% of his own food for one year, without owning any of his own land
  • Despite having no previous experience growing food, Greenfield successfully produced enough food to not only feed himself, but some members of his community, too
  • The film is set in Orlando, Florida, where Greenfield is growing a variety of foods including spinach, kale, celery, green onions and beets, just to name a few
  • Greenfield teaches free classes on gardening and gives away free seeds
  • His mission to grow and forage all of his own food is designed to inspire others to grow their own food, whether that be planting their first tomato plant or turning their yard into an edible garden
