I think you could set something like the following in your .emacs file:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(load-library "find-lisp")
(setq org-agenda-files (append (find-lisp-find-files "~/directory1" "\.org$")
			       (find-lisp-find-files "~/directory2" "\.org$")         
                               (find-lisp-find-files "~/directory3" "\.org$")))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

This will search the directories above recursively for org files.
Whenever you want to remove a project from your agenda, simply delete
the appropriate line and evaluate the expression. I'd imagine someone
else can think of a way to do this more economically, though.
