    This presentation was really fun to watch and had a lot of great insight into what you two are doing. I think the level of communication you had in this project is amazing and I admire the record you all kept of the things that were happening. The work you two are doing seems so huge despite how it’s concentrated in Delaware County, which is important to think about regarding sustainability. Every little thing can be extremely important with a large impact, and should never be taken for granted. You’ve done so much for this project and seeing this in combination with the reflections I’ve read from both of you is inspiring. I’m curious where this will take you next as it continues into the new year.
