Gallery: The White House Organic Farm Project


Last week, we covered the results of the White House Redux competition. The competition asked what the White House might look like if it was designed today. This week, we are visiting with activists Daniel Bowman Simon and Casey Gustowarow who already know what should be done with the president’s residence: they hope to grow organic food on the lawn. And how are they sending their message? The duo have planted the “roof” of their flipped-up double-bus with a garden and are currently touring the country with it. It used to be called the Topsy-Turvy Bus: now it’s on a mission to get the 44th president to turn the country’s food system on its head. With a new name, The White House Organic Farm Project, and the elections around the corner, Daniel and Casey are hoping to get enough people to sign their petition as they tour the country.

    No Way! I happened across your bus today on the internet and God be my witness I passed it on my way home on Interstate 81, northbound, exit 63 Tri-City Airport Kingsport, TN. I was in a little Vibe (30mph) and honking my horn like a mad woman with road rage (except it was green rage = ) It was the wildest thing that has ever happened to me. Many Blessings and Signatures.
