Our goal is to work “in the flow” on a project/issue related to either Climate or Food Systems during that time.  Through January, February and March we’ll need between 12 and 24 hours total to develop a work plan together.  The strategy and plan you develop will dictate the time commitment but our intent is to make this a part of your work; not an add on.
