Joel,
        RE: Request for Sustainable Ag materials:
        Here is what I have so far:
        Please  inquire at the National Ag Library re: training and
degree
opportunities in sustainable ag.  They have a publication entitled:
Educational and Training Opportunities in SA, 6th edition.  It is
quite
comprehensive.  Available free from the following:
NAL Alternative Farming Systems Information Center
USDA, NAL, Room 111, 10301 Baltimore Blvd., Beltsville, MD
20705-2351.
 
Another source:  Sustainable Ag Network's SA Directory of Expertise,
available
>from  Sustainable Ag Publications, Hills Bldg., Room 12, U of VT, Burlington,
VT  05405-0082.
 
        Also, if you want to receive the packet of information that we
at
CIAS (Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems), UW-Madison,
Madison, WI
send out to prospective graduate students, please provide me with a
mailing
address.  This packet is too bulky for email.
        You may email your address to: TROYAN at MACC.WISC.EDU
        OR PHONE ME @608-262-5200. Leave message on my voice mail if I
am not
at my desk.
 
        Thanking you for your interest,
