A new phase...."lil' Kernel"

After a 3 year hiatus, I am renewing my socially active art project about the food we eat. In keeping with my most common mode of transportation I created lil' Kernel. To begin lil' Kernel will take up where Maize left off. When I'm biking my errands and need extra cargo area I'll strap on the lil' Kernel. Inside I have my handmade book the Kernel of Truth, a non-GMO shopping guide,  and organic corn seeds to hand out to those who are interested. Each side window has a scanable barcode to this website. Yesterday, I went to Whole Foods and refilled my 5 gallon water jug using the lil' Kernel.  Tomorrow I'll take the lil' Kernel to the U of  M Earth Day Celebration at the Garden. They are having a bike parade and I'll post pictures after that.

Maize is for Sale!

For $2,000 you can own an art car with a LEGACY. It's a '93 Subaru Legacy wagon. I use it as a daily driving car. It has 300,487 miles. It comes with regalia that matches the car, non-GMO shopping guides, organic corn seeds,  roof racks and a platform that looks like a husk, and this blog. Driving an art car is a wonderful experience, especially one that has an important message. Review the blog to learn more about this great opportunity. Contact me at JABDART@GMAIL.COM for more info.

Occupy Monsanto

October 16 we took over the four corners of Poplar and Highland. About 15 people showed up initially, but many more joined us just because they saw us and were motivated. It was unlike any experience I've ever had. I made and handed out over 50 Kernels of Truth non-GMO shopping guides and most of my organic corn seeds. I was interviewed by Fox News and they aired a great segment at least twice. The dude with the flag has the only other art car in town that I know about and his more about too much government.

300,000 miles

Maize will hit 300,000 miles soon (about 40 more miles). I need ideas! How do I celebrate/honor this milestone?
