What’s it like to live in an off the grid straw bale house, use solar power, grow your own food, and collect rainfall from your roof? What if your father was a famous actor turned green activist? Nick News documents the lives of kids living alternative, ecological lifestyles in their new A Kid Off The Grid television program. The show features three kids’ stories from Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage in northeastern Missouri, a sustainable off the grid community, and that of Hayden Begley, daughter of Ed Begley Jr., the popular environmental celebrity.
In this Nickelodeon Nick News segment, three kids from Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage talk about just how different their lives are from those living in the city or suburbs, especially because all their power comes from the sun, they live in a green home, and get drinking water from collected rainfall.
Hayden Begley talks about what makes her life different from other families in Studio City, California, and Alexis from the Bronx, New York grows a rooftop garden in the middle of the city.
