W & F Assignments

"The benefits of working with nature's water cycle, rather than further disrupting it, are too compelling to ignore." 

This is where students will find the brief listing for what is happening in the Honors Sustainable Water & Food class each day, what the outside of class work is and what is due for each day. Also, supporting resources in the form of links to websites, pages and documents will be listed with what is to be worked on. For more specific details on what happens in class or for the outside of class work, please visit the specific dates you are looking for on the Honors Water & Food Calendar and click on "more details."
