thanks for forwarding this message to MarieElana. I have replied to her personally.
It is so good to hear from you. Thankyou for your lovely comments!
We are negotiating with an Aid organisation here to conduct a PDC and an Introductory course in Peru, for their counterparts (one of whom is the Club de Amigos).
I am awaiting a project summary which I will forward when I get it. I know it is in a drylands area.
We would like to make links if the project goes ahead in these areas:
a.. translators for our teaching for the PDC
b.. teaching materials in Spanish that we could access
c.. mentors for follow up work, especially site development
d.. seed banks and plant materials
e.. possibly site visits (depending on distances)
We would expect the organisation here to pay for such services. Do you have approximate rates that we could give them for their budget proposal (in $US)? How much would it cost to provide a set of handouts in Spanish for a PDC?
I can't promise an outcome at this stage for us or for you, but it is looking very likely.
Great to hear from you, let's keep in touch.
Naomi and Rick Coleman
PS If you can get that information on your castor trials in an accessible format we would love to read about it. We know people in Mexico and Palestine who would be very interested. Also a personal message of support for you and your untiring real permaculture work. Don't let a few Western internet gardeners get you down!

Marsha Here again..At the Latinamerican Congress in Argentina there was a wonderful Peruvian woman who works in community projects ( in Cuzco and near Lima) through the university in Lima. She is very active ( was even candidate for the Green Party), although still quite young -- perhaps in her early thirties...
Her name is Veronica Viña. She was wanting to take me there to do consultancy in these projects, so if you need an interpreter, I would be happy to fulfill this role. But I think she speaks good English...
Good luck on the project...
(I just realized that I don´t have Veronica´s e-mail-- just changed computers. Will get it from a colleague and send it to you...)

We are looking for contacts in Peru who may be interested in linking in with a possible development project to be undertaken in Peru with an Aid organisation here. We may also require permaculture trained interpreters (English to Spanish).
Its all in the planning and submission stage at the moment but please let us know of any projects happening in Peru and activists who we can network with.
