Why: Attention capacities are thin...delivering more information is counterproductive. Accordingly, we're exploring how to make that information more digestible and meaningful - regardless of age, knowledge, or experience.
Endgame: Sustainability being lead focus - Reduce the effort to learn about ourselves, increase the curiosity to do so, and know the measurable context of our actions.
We are proudly funded through local grants administered by the Saint Croix Valley Foundation

This section will evolve frequently in coming months.
