Look Ma, we’re famous!

Compass Green is now on the Disney Channel! At the end of the Spring Tour, I spent several days being filmed for Disney’s series Pass The Plate. On Monday, when we were teaching in eastern OR, I was curious why all these students kept coming up and asking for my autograph. Now I know why, the Disney spot has gone to air!

Although it just went live, lots of family and friends have been congratulating me on it, to which I am very grateful, and feel immeasurably stoked! It’s worth mentioning, that this is super exciting not because more strangers are recognizing my face, but because kids who are in front of their television all over the country are getting shown an image of the adventures that can be had out in the sunshine, working with edible plants.

I am so excited that so many people will be learning about sustainability, and I will continue my project so that more people can learn the skills and reasons for growing a greater percentage of their diet, no matter what their living situation is, even if it’s just a hammock in the back of a big truck.

Halfway in, 3,000 reached!

We are halfway through the Fall Tour and we have taught over 3,000 students. It has been busy, tiring, but so very rewarding. We’ve taught mostly elementary schools, but have also taught at middle schools (my old one in fact) and a Seattle high school.

The old spirit of adventure has lead us to make numerous new friends here, sleep on boats, hike mountains and be even more committed to help this green state get greener.

It’s tricky sometimes to get on here and upload our thoughts, but it’s easier to do so on our Facebook page, which we recommend you check out.

Onward and upward, and I sure hope you voted!
