      Great idea! Very happy to help out. If you ever come to Toronto, we have a huge St. Lawrence Market where you could catch a lot of interest. Can't wait to see your truck run on vegetable oil!! Show us how easy it is!

      Love the idea, wish I had thought of it!
      Please stop by in Philly - we are planting a garden at a recently completed LEED Platinum certified high school (the first of its kind in the US). We'll be doing workshops all through the Spring and Summer.

      you're so close! good luck to you, it's a great project.

      Dudes!
      You are rockin' this one. All success, and if you can, come to Canada! (Vancouver, of course.) How bout them corporate backers? Local grocers, organic seed companies, hit some Farmers Markets, go wild, I mean WILD! If you came to the Vancouver Farmer's Market across the street form me, you could show 6,000 shoppers your stuff on any Saturday. On Sunday, hit the other market for another 5,000 souls. One weekend in this town can net you well over 15,000 potential visitors. What about Seattle's market? Park this puppy anywhere! Could ask for some donations then, and help out your cause. Maybe pre-commit your future donations with a risk-loving eco-preneur. We are proud of you!

      Great idea. Thought you might find The Topsy Turvy bus project as useful inspiration and possible source of collaboration. Here are some links...

      Hello Justin,
      This is the Justin whose wallet you found in central park and were so kind in returning. It's alot of stress off my back and thank you so much for sending it back. After seeing what a great idea this is i also want to donate to it to show my thanks and hopefully get this great idea funded. I wont be bale to donate money until this account is fully set up but thank you very much for the effort you put in returning the wall
      With many thanks,
      The other Justin
      p.s. there wasn't any money in the wallet when i lost it so if anybody did find it before you as you suspected, they wouldn't get anything :)

      Great idea! It's one thing to talk about hydroponics, but show people the real thing growing real plants and they get excited. I've made dozens of demo hydroponic systems, of all types, and they've always made a big impression, especially with kids.

      I hope you take a lot of photos and shoot video so you can make a good web presentation. That will get you invited to schools and colleges around the country. Also hope you'll raise fish to demonstrate aquaculture possibilities.

    21. Creator Jeanne Ball on April 1, 2011

      Come to Asheville, NC and you'll get a big audience!

    22. Creator justin Cosgrove on March 30, 2011

    23. Creator Ashley Easton on March 30, 2011
