In broad strokes,  Project SOIL consists of five distinct elements:

  1. Four case studies of existing projects (2013-2014)
  2. Five pilot sites with our partners (2014-2015)
  3. A survey of administrators at public institutions (2014)
  4. Interviews with a representative sample of these administrators (2014)
  5. In-depth feasibility studies with an exclusive set of institutions that demonstrate a keen interest in on-site food production (2015-2016)
