Researching potential crafts and industries is a big part of our work. It’s just one of the ways we build close relationships with communities, and work to be responsive to their needs. We have met and talked with many people regarding possible income generating projects. Where can we source local materials? What is the range of skill sets in the community? Who is growing and having an impact? How do others do it? We learn more every day about what is needed to make these projects grow and endure.
