We LOVE innovation, and it lights a fire within us. We are solution seekers and finders, and we like to share and learn. We see and feel the need to build programs for children, including those with special needs. In our own kids, we acknowledge the deep effect that nature, food, play, and love have on their development and awareness of all things good.
