Projects

Projects are typically concentrated, short duration efforts that focus on specific design issues or involve a single aspect of a program (e.g., design assistance, evaluation, professional development or policy initiative).

“The kids love talking about the garden, they are excited about it and the garden extends their science and nature learning.”
