Compass featured on front page of Nambour Weekly.

It was another great day for Compass, as we made headlines again.  This time on the cover of today’s edition of the Nambour Weekly and a wonderful write up on page 4 about our recent Endeavour Foundation grant.  “Rake and Panes”, the garden maintenance branch of the Compass Institute was featured in the weekly, with high praise coming from Endeavour Foundation’s CEO David Barbagallo.

Mr. Barbagallo applauded the “Rakes and Panes” program, saying “This is a great social enterprise, where people are doing meaningful work.”

Compass trainees at the Palmwoods farm were completely excited about the article and said they were glad to see that the Compass was getting the exposure it deserves.
