Sunset Magazine Article Woohoo!

Many of you know about the little article that came out on Compass Green in the latest issue of Sunset Magazine. What you don’t know is the huge effect that it is having on us.

In the week since it came out, we’ve had over 60 interested schools contact us, and several museums, companies, and other organizations reach out to arrange a visit. While we won’t be able to get to all of them, our intern team is currently doing research on the socio-economic status of the schools to help figure out where we would have the greatest impact.

Lot’s of people have congratulated me recently, saying what a success Compass Green is becoming, and they are right. Not because of the publicity that we garner along the way though, but because of the 8,000+ students we have reached.

It looks like the concise and well-written Sunset article is going to help us to reach even more students too, so I am happy. Tomorrow, those students will be the young ones at an elementary school in Sacramento, CA.

Ever onwards,

  1. I was extremely excited looking through the April 2014 Sunset for all the articles regarding Spring! It is the time of year to feel refreshed and what more of a refresh is there than seeing new seedlings growing by the second. I was hopeful that you might come by our wonderful community of Loveland Colorado. Especially to visit our green house at Walt Clark Middle School. One of the best educators you will ever meet has taken this donated greenhouse to such greatness. Sol Miller began teaching Industrial Tech after teaching science for a couple of years. He was a newbie to the IT department but he has embraced the program as he does all. He has received grant money that has helped get our greenhouse up to where it is today (envy of all schools in our area). He is teaching the students about the value of composting, the joy of seeing how fulfilling it is to take a seed, planting it in rich soil and a little water can be life sustaining. He brought in a used large fish tank to recycle into a terrarium where he placed grass seed, some twigs and caterpillars. The caterpillars went through the cocoon stage and voila butterflies that the students took to the greenhouse where they will enjoy them! If there is any way you get a chance to stop in Loveland, Colorado i would highly encourage you to do so you won’t regret it!
