With the aim to encourage more local agriculture, the CompassGreen truck wants to travel the United States in a movable garden. They want to conduct presentations that will reach the young and old by reaching out to schools, universities, and community centers. The workshops will focus on bio-intensive methods of sustainable farming, while also providing solutions to the impending food crisis.
This idea behind this initiative was realized by two young men by the names of Nick Runkle and Justin Cutter, from San Francisco, California. By creating an interactive environment they can persuade a large number of people to grow their own crops. Often times educational pamphlets are sent to people's homes, which can often get tossed out in the trash. The CompassGreen truck is a great way to get the community involved.
