I met a couple of young guys who are traveling the country in the Topsy Turvy bus to promote the idea of an organic garden on the White House Lawn.
This video chronicles a day-in-the-life of The White House Organic Farm Project's (aka TheWhoFarm) cross-country tour with Daniel Bowman Simon and Casey Gustowarow, two guys who met in The Philippines as Peace Corps Volunteers.
Their tour promotes a petition to our next president, respectfully requesting that an organic farm be planted on The White House grounds. While Obama is busy with plans to fix everything else in the world, TheWhoFarmers are spending this transition period working to build a coalition of the willing in Washington, DC. This coalition includes local farmers who can help the green-thumbed White House grounds crew get up to speed on organic farming, and a hunger relief organization that will offer to pick up the excess bounty from The White House once the first family is fed.
TheWhoFarm bus was previously known as the Topsy Turvy bus, built by Burning Man art car legend Tom Kennedy. TheWhoFarm purchased the bus second-hand, and converted the roof into a mobile organic vegetable garden, believed to be the first ever garden on top of a school bus.
The bus might be up for sale soon, so if you're in the market for a one-of-a-kind, attention grabbing, food producing vehicle, give the boys a shout. And by all means, sign their petition!

Le Bouche à Oreille is a perfectly decent working class diner in Bourges that’ll feed you a slap-up meal for €10. La Bouche à Oreille, though, is a brilliant €48-course restaurant in Paris. Only one of them should have been awarded a Michelin star, but don’t tell that to the posh sorts descending en masse […]
