We’re spreading food gardens all over America and making food free, the way it used to be. We’re planting fruits, veggies, herbs, and wildflowers in and around your city, giving out free seeds, and funding community gardens and sustainability projects. This is a grassroots movement that involves you! Come plant with us anywhere along the tour, or reach out to us for free seeds or garden support in your area. Read on for more!
The Freestyle Gardening Movement- “Putting free food everywhere”
We are on a mission to make food simple, free, and growing everywhere – in the cities and the countryside, at our homes and in our schools, in vacant lots and on open rooftops, down the streets and up the walls. And once that fresh, healthy food is grown we want it to end up in your mouth! Freestyle gardening is free of boundaries, business, and budgets. Growing your own food and sharing with others puts the power back where it belongs, in your hands. Quite simply the Freestyle Gardening movement is going to put free and healthy food everywhere!
We’re kicking off the movement with a grassroots coast-to-coast tour and we’re making it easy for you to grow the solution with us. Rob Greenfield is cycling across America on his bamboo bicycle planting seeds along the way and Michael Scalli is creating gardens and planting with people like you in select cities on the tour. This summer we aim to create 5+ community gardens, plant millions of wildflowers, freestyle plant tens of thousands of fruit and veggie seeds, and give away funds to help others take action.
We want you to plant something! Here’s how you can get involved!
Come plant with us – join up with us along the tour to plant some seeds of goodness in your community! We’ll be hosting some seed planting parties, community bike rides, and group gardening events. Contact us to get involved or get something started in your city!
Plant on your own– If you want to grow food now your seeds are on us! Get a packet of fruit and vegetables to grow for yourself and your community, or wildflowers to help the bees.
Start a Goodfluence Garden– A Goodfluence Garden is a place where food is free, healthy, organic, and sustainably grown. Goodfluence Gardens create a culture that is less dependent on money and the industrial agriculture system that is currently harming our people, animals, and natural resources. These gardens use recycled materials and are lead by resourceful people wanting to be a part of positive change in America. Goodfluence Gardens can be at homes, schools, public spaces, businesses, basically anywhere that food will grow. We’re eager to collaborate, gather motivated groups, organize quickly, and catalyze some good, sustainable gardening.
We want to help you grow food and we’re going to give you the information, inspiration, and money to do so. Get in touch with us to plant with us or on your own. Email Michael@Goodfluence.com to get started!
Also… Goodfluence The Social Network – Coming Fall 2014
Goodfluence is the new social network where you do good and influence others to do good too. By good we’re talking actions that are beneficial to the earth, your community, and yourself. Simply through leading by example and sharing a photo of yourself in action you can create viral goodness using the power of social media. Imagine a news feed that inspires you and makes it easy for you to do good for the world. Goodfluence is a community of positive thinkers and more importantly positive doers brightening each others day.
As least someone is doing something and the reason I cover this article because we as a people we doing to do something great for the community.
