hi martha and all:

> Initially Altertec sought out farmers who had maintained more or less
organic practices, interplanting, saving their seeds, traditional erosion
control etc. and taught them the science behind why it worked.  And helped
them improve on it.  Then they taught them effective pedagogy to become the
teachers to other farmers

seek out what (still) works, establish a nucleus and build on that - they
have got their pc down. great people.

> have you both read Shaman's apprentice by Mark Plotkin?

no, haven't heard of it so far. promising title though.
thanky, martha.
