Design & Do
How do you design a SMARTER project plan?
A SMARTER plan is Specific, Measurable, Agreeable, Realistic, Timely, Ethical, and Relevant.
Planning your project requires teamwork. As a team, complete the Project Planner to design a SMARTER plan to restore the health of the soil at your site. Once you have completed the Project Planner, use the form below to submit it to Hero Headquarters.
Well-designed projects are SMARTER: Specific, Measurable,
Achievable, Relevant, Timely, Ethical, and Realistic. Your design should benefit the soil, the location, the natural environment, and the people who own and visit the site.
Planning for communications includes how you will tell others what you are doing (including getting permission!) and how you will document your work.
Budget & Fundraise
How much do you think your project is going to cost? Where can you get the materials you need? How can you raise the funds you'll need?
Do the Work!
When are you going to do your project? Do you need volunteers? How are you going to get everyone organized?
How are you going to make sure your project is taken care of after you are finished? What can you do to ensure your project helps your soil for a long time?
