Overall, the project really helped emphasis the vast scale of the wicked problem regarding bees. Our groups project focused on one aspect, Agriculture, and still had a scale ranging from the individual to the commercial farm. Being able to narrow on one aspect of the problem, maintaining a full appreciation of the scope, and understanding our limitations was important to our success. The largest limitation our project faced surrounded fundraising. Having individuals buy into the mission and enticing farmers to make changes are the biggest limitations. A strength of the project was the emphasis on collaboration. ODE aims not to be the policy maker or change bringer, but rather educate and enable individuals to take action. The scale of those actions is vast, but ODE attempts to make it easy for everyone to do something.
Finally, the project and the class left me with an appreciation for the value of working withing a diverse team. Different skills and backgrounds helped to produce the most well rounded project and ensure high levels of craftsmanship on all areas of the project.
