We are growing! We have added over 24 new grant funded projects to the community with more to join over the coming months. The growth is exciting and we would ask all our "regulars" to welcome our n00bs by offering advice, connecting the work and helping us make new projects feel part of something bigger. All of our work is stronger in the open, working collaboratively and looking for ways to grow together!
