If you want to ask the next president to plant an organic garden at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., now's your chance. The White House Organic Farm Project is collecting signatures on Tuesday at the Farmers' Market at 10 a.m. You'll recognize them because they're carrying a petition and driving an upside-down bus. The full press release follows after the jump.
The White House Organic Farm Project (aka TheWhoFarm) is coming to Nashville on Tuesday Oct 28.
We are petitioning the next president to plant an organic farm at The White House as a model for healthy, economical and sustainable living everywhere. TheWhoFarm will serve as an educational tool and economic aid, and as a means to provide food security in the Nation's Capitol. It will reconnect the Office of the Presidency to the self-sufficient agricultural roots of America's Founding Fathers.
We are traveling around the country in a double-decker upside down school bus with a garden on top in order to garner support for this project and gain signatures for our petition. We traveled from New York to San Francisco for Slow Food Nation and are now on our way to DC for the elections, stopping at farmers markets, restaurants, schools, colleges, farms, festivals and other community events along the way.
