Man Living in a 10'x10' Tiny House & Homesteading in the City 4.5
Rob Greenfield's latest sustainable living project is to live in a DIY 100 ft² tiny house for two years while foraging and growing 100% of his own food in an urban area. You can follow more of Rob's adventures in sustainable living on YouTube and on his website here:

We are thrilled to be featuring Rob on our channel, and we learned so much from him just with this one video collaboration. In addition to living in his tiny home, he's figuring out how to create his own cooking fuel using a biodigester, he's growing his own toilet paper, and he even makes his own sea salt.

He built the tiny house in the backyard of someone who was looking to live more sustainably. In exchange for a place to build the home, he created a rainwater collection system, an extensive garden on the front lawn, a bio digester and composting system, and more.

Obviously, we can't all live like Rob is doing in this video (although it does look like a healthy, simple, and rewarding lifestyle), but we can get inspired to make positive changes in our own lives. Maybe start composting or eating more fresh food, creating less garbage, riding our bikes more, etc. That's what we're inspired to do after working on this video with him :)

We also want to say a huge thank you to Brandon Kari for filming this footage of Rob and his tiny house homestead for us. You can check out Brandon's work on his website here:

Feels like the adult version of a kid building a fort in the backyard.

He's not simply living in a 10x10 structure. He's living on a good size plot of land and has a 10x10 enclosed structure along with another structure to use for living.

He is healthy and happy. This is amazing!



This is wisdom.. he is not homeless. This is a simple life. No debts

This is the rich version of a homeless man
