COMPASS Boston joined the SLUG program in the Fall of 2010. COMPASS is a community-based, not-for-profit, special needs school and social service agency dedicated to providing comprehensive educational, counseling, support and enrichment services to at-risk youth, adolescents and families through its school based and family based programs.

COMPASS has incorporated two grow lights in to classrooms and is excited to bring food grown in the classroom in to the culinary arts program. They are also conducting some non-food experiments like growing avocado seeds, dwarf sunflowers and nasturtiums.
