Here in the States Iwould include the Aprovecho Institute in Cottage Grove,
Oregon that is also next door to the Cob Cottage Company. Both that have done
much to educate people in the First and Third World.

Also, to be included would have to be the Friends Of The Trees Society run by
Michael Pilarski who coordinates the Travellers Earth Repair Network. If you
want more on the above contact me...
