one zany adventure at a time!
Worm is a SOIL CONNOISSEUR. One hardy chomp of any earth sample and he knows what part of the world it came from and whether it has the right nutrients to help plants grow. Our informative friend also has plans to create the next sustainable business venture that will provide jobs and healthy food!
Put these two traits together, and Worm becomes the BioBarn’s official agripreneur! Worm’s pretty sustainable himself—nothing he eats ever goes to waste. He puts the organic in recycled organic matter!
FRITTATA is a super smart egg with a dry sense of humour who travels with Potato from The Future to The Present. Rational and cautious, Frittata provides the common sense to keep their missions on task. And thanks to his self-built solar-powered flying ROCKET PANTS THAT TALK, he supplies a multitude of handy gadgets along the way.
Eggs are surprisingly strong, as well as sensitive. Frittata is Potato’s sounding board and offers her encouragement, warnings, alternate game plans, and deadpan zingers!
Potato is an optimist with a heart of gold, a great sense of fun, a thirst for adventure, and a hearty appetite for potato peels! A true leader with a CAN-DO attitude, she LOVES her planet, and will stop at nothing to make it more… PLANET POSITIVE!
Formerly an average chicken in search of another tasty meal, Potato looked into a puddle one fateful day and saw her future heroic self. With one peck at her reflection, she was transported into the future, becoming the leader of the Planet Protectors.
Persa, our electric catfish from the Nile, gets a big charge out of spreading good news about CLEAN ENERGY. A practical and methodical fish, Persa runs the Planet Protectors’ time machine on potato cells. After all, affordable, reliable, and sustainable energy for all communities just makes sense!
Naturally, Persa loves water too! Fresh water, salt water, rainwater, boiled water (especially for her beloved tea)—if it’s got H2O in it, she knows about it. And if she doesn’t, well that’s just shocking!
The ever-friendly, ever-enthusiastic Bello is the Planet Protectors’ telecommunications specialist, using their mycelial network with plants and trees (The Wood Wide Web) to inform everyone about the latest news or travel to far flung places.
As a mushroom, Bello repeatedly springs up from the earth with a wide-eyed wonder and then disappears back into the soil, making them quite the expert on CYCLES. Each rejuvenation also brings a new adventure, and Bello loves to share all about their discoveries!
