Life inside a travelling school bus powered by vegetable oil
This segment originally aired on Sept. 17, 2017.
Not the one from the beloved children's story.
There's no Ms. Frizzle, and this bus doesn't go on science expeditions.
But it is a wildly colourful 1979 supercoach with the name Soulfire painted across the front.
It has travelled over 30,000 miles — from Oregon to Colombia — with an engine that runs on vegetable oil.
And its denizens do have adventures.
Over 200 artists and musicians have been part of its mission to promote environmental change and sustainability. They support themselves by performing cumbia, afro-latino, and reggae music.
But at the heart of Soulfire is a mother-son team, Andrea and Cooper Morgan.
