At the farmers market, I also came across the White House Organic Farm Project bus. They road trip around the country in a yellow school bus, fund raising and promoting the concept for the next President to start an organic farm at the White House.

Excerpt from their website:

“TheWhoFarm Project is a non-partisan, petition-based initiative to respectfully request that our 44th President plant an organic farm on the grounds of the White House at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The farm will be tended by school children and Americans with disabilities, to feed the President, healthy school lunch programs, and food pantries. The farm will serve as a model for education, health, and sustainability for the United States of America & the world at large.”

They have been gaining popularity and media coverage from local newspapers and magazines. Many spectators walked over to take pictures of the bizarre looking bus, asked questions about what the deal was, and donated money to support their cause.

What I found most interesting was that they constructed a small organic farm on the top of the bus.
