Farm Bus: Gardeners on a Roll

From Durham, NC, a bus-load of idealistic farmers dream of teaching the nation to grow. Grow vegetables, that is. And they plan to do it from a 52-person school bus retrofitted with solar panels, a mobile greenhouse, living roof, vermacompost, and waste water collection tanks, all fueled with waste vegetable oil (WVO).

The Last Food Article You Will Ever Need

 “Believe nothing.

where you read it, or who said it, even if I have said it, unless it agrees with you own reason and your own common sense."

               - Buddha

“The same molecules
that make up the food
we consume become
the molecules of our

  _ Tim Willey, Farmer
             Madera CA
 “If man made it… don’t eat





        - Jack LaLanne

  “If we are
 always arriving and
 departing, it is also
 true that we are 
 eternally anchored. 
 One's destination is 
 never a place but 
 rather a new way of 
 looking at things."

           - Henry Miller
  “The rest of the
 world lives to eat…
 I eat to live.”
- Socrates
“Teachers open the door, 

you must enter by 


         - Chinese proverb
