Just wanted to post a little update. Compass Green has now taught over 36,000 students sustainable agriculture, primarily underprivileged youth at Title 1 schools. We've been featured in the SF Chronicle, Sunset Magazine, Urban Farm Podcast, the Disney Channel ( and numerous other publications. Many of the schools that we've visited have started ongoing sustainability education programs, such as this school in Oregon:

"You asked if your visit to our school has had any lasting impact?....I can't believe how much has happened since you visited us this fall/winter! We now have a huge garden on school grounds called the "Pirate's Bounty Community Learning Garden." More than 12 local businesses (and we are a VERY small town) have contributed to the tilling, composting, path and fence building, irrigation, etc. of the garden. The 400+ students at our grade school planted seeds in early spring and put those plants in the ground before school got out. The first graders and the fifth graders partnered up to train the rest of the school to start a composting program in our cafeteria at breakfast and lunch. Volunteers and their families are tending to the weeding and harvesting this summer, delivering the bounty to the local Food Bank and the Dayton Friday Night celebrations in the local park to be given away. This has brought the community together in a new way, and we hope to sustain the excitement through the next school year and beyond."

We are expanding in 2016 and would love your continued support! Please visit to donate.

Thank you so much for making all of this possible!

New Website, New Fundraiser

Hello Original Funders!

For those of you who haven't been receiving our newsletters or following us on our blog, you will be pleased to know that your support 2 years ago has gone a long way. We've traveled over 35,000 miles in our mobile greenhouse, and taught over 3,000 students, most of them at-risk youth who wouldn't normally have access to this type of education.

We've done a lot in the last 2 years, but we can do more. We are currently fundraising for our Spring tour, and we need your support. Help us raise $8,000 so that we can teach over 1,000 students this March. Visit our donation page HERE.

Thanks so much,

Nick and Justin

p.s. our website just got a makeover, check it out!

The Final Update!

Final Kickstarter Update

Rabbit!  (A Cutter family tradition of unknown origins, where we say “Rabbit!” as early as possible on the first of every month.  Yes, I said it yesterday too.)

This will probably be the last Kickstarter Update we will send out, but no need to weep!  You can still remain close to us by following our blog at, or by signing up for our monthly newsletter through the following link: (Note: those who asked to be signed up for it on the survey have already been added to the list.)

For those who haven’t yet filled out our survey, please do so soon, as we’re getting ready to send out our rewards when we begin our tour at the end of the month.

As always, thank you so much for your support, and we hope to be seeing you somewhere along our route.

The Blogging Has Begun!

Hi everyone!

We're in the process of building our website and for the meantime have launched our blog! Check it out at:

No more mass emails! If you want to follow us, it's up to you :) Thank you so much again for supporting our Kickstarter campaign and we hope to see you down the road!

Sincerely, Nick and Justin


Wow!  You guys, we all did this!  It's hard to describe our appreciation right now.  To all 335 of you who got behind this project and made it happen, THANK YOU!  (Nick saved me from going into bleeding-heart sappiness just now.)  Seriously though, you are our inspiration, and we are now ready to get out there and make this happen.

On a practical note, we're heading down to Asheville on Sunday to convert the truck to veggie oil. We'll be sending you a short survey in the next week or so we know where to send your rewards.

Let the journey begin. YES!


Nick and Justin
