A Mobile Greenhouse Project: Compass Green

So it all started with a thought, then a truck, then a kickstarter.  Now Compass Green is on the road to spread the word of sustainable garden techniques to children, schools and the community, literally they are a greenhouse on the road.   So SCAD…wanna bring Compass Green to our campus??

Compass Green is a fully functional greenhouse built in the back of a box truck that grows vegetables and herbs and is powered by waste vegetable oil. We teach practical farming tools and raise awareness on sustainability through presentations, workshops, and greenhouse tours at schools, camps, organizations and communities. Our curriculum is focused on Bio-intensive methods of sustainable farming—producing the maximum yields with the minimum amount of resources.

With an ever-increasing population and an alarming decrease in farmable soil, we feel it is important to share practical solutions to turn our situation of agricultural scarcity into one of abundance. Compass Green will inspire people across the country to be creative and utilize any and all space they can to grow food.
