In early September, Daniel Bowman Simon and Casey Gustowarow visited Google in their modified double-decker school bus. Their bus is really two buses fused together with an organic garden on the roof. (The picture above shows our very own Jen Mazzon holding a cauliflower in front of the bus).
Daniel and Casey are leading a petition-based initiative to request that the next president plant an organic farm on the grounds of the White House. Their visit to Google was one stop in their cross-country drive in the bus. At Google, they had lunch with employees, including a Google chef. Daniel and Casey recently arrived in Washington, D.C., just in time for election day.
Everywhere they've gone, from farmers markets to truck stops, they carry a physical petition with them. They've also created an online version of their petition using a Google Docs spreadsheet form. Daniel tells us that they've collected over 1,500 online signatures so far using this form. Check out their online petition and then let us know in the comments of this post if you've used forms for your own petition or cause.
